  • Speakers: Minerva Perez & Sandy Dunn
  • Worship Associate: Pamela Greinke

  • Minerva Perez will be sharing information on the issues that OLA has been focused on recently and the ways that our community can become involved in supporting our Latin@ neighbors. Recent actions include: offering mental health workshops in collaboration with CMEE; a theater camp for children and the results of their recent camp; how limited transportation options for unlicensed drivers can be problematic and how we can all help to push this as a platform issue for candidates in East Hampton, Southampton and the legislature; Information on discretionary laws that could have Latinos sent to jail, and how immigrant allies can fight the feeling of helplessness. We need to each focus on what we can and what we want to do to better our community and actively create the environment we envision.

  • August 20  Infinity in Your Hand
  • Speaker: Galen Guengerich, Senior Minister of All Souls, NYCity
  • Worship Associate: John Andrews
  • Musician: Nancy Remkus
  • When the poet William Blake observed that you could hold infinity in the palm of your hand, he was stating poetically what can also be stated scientifically: each element of our experience connects us with the experience of everything. Our awareness of this interplay involves practicing what in today’s parlance we call mindfulness. If we look carefully at what is close at hand, we suddenly realize that we already have more of everything — and we remind ourselves not to take what we have for granted.
