July 21st: Growing Our Vocabulary

Service Leader: Ashlyn Noble
Service Coordinator: Odell Havsdotter

We will explore how our first four principles can lead us to re-examine the words we use. We covenant to speak to and about each other with respect, yet some of the language that has become entrenched in our everyday lexicon is harmful and hurtful. It’s tough to drop words we’ve used for decades, but we can work together to help one another shift our words towards inclusion.
