More talk about forgiveness where two parents shared forgiveness of the death of a son and for the shooter.  Also, ;earned that for Buddhist you are only allowed to grieve for 40 days.  Any longer you are holding  the  dead person from “moving on”.    [12 people attended].  To share forgiveness you must forgive yourself first.

22 April 2018

[this morning we had 12 people]

main issue:  no sound from the DVD.

little review that whiteness is earned

there is an arrogance, but it’s also a privilege.  Initially the original peope were the English, Scots, and Dutch.

 

We closed down, and the DVD will be addressed for next weeks study.

This  includes “being left out of the house”

Do we feel  guilty of belonging to the white club?

For guilt we don’t invoke.  We also must wake up to our responsibilities.

This also creates a culture wore  between different interest.

 

Next week the talk is about the  author Baldwin  and a book “……….you negro”.   It’s something like that.
