9:15 Discussion Group Topic:Great Movies
10:30 Service:  Dan Gribbin, “Huck Finn and Our Racial Divide”
When Mark Twain published his novel Huckleberry Finn in 1885, he posed a moral challenge for Huck.  To satisfy the legal requirements and prevailing morality of the day, Huck would be required to turn in Jim, a runaway slave.  But what to do with a runaway slave who has become your friend and protector?  It’s tempting to look back at the law and the church those many years ago and to say that we’ve come a long way—that Huck would not have to agonize over such a decision today.  But how far have we come?  How safe would Jim be in 2019 America?  Under what norms do we attempt to operate today as a diverse society?

9:15 Discussion Group Topic:
10:30 Service: Dr. Timothy Bartik, "Can Economics be Moral?"                              A sound economy depends on society providing adequate public goods, and restricting harmful side-effects of business activity. A sound economy also rests on restricting the market power of the largest businesses. Broadly shared prosperity requires attention to income distribution, not just the size of the economic pie.  
Service Leader: Denise Carter
