Current Issues Discussion Group

Lead by Ron Mutchnik

Meets on the 3rd Thursday of each month at 1:00 PM

Each month the group engages in an interesting, relevant and often controversial discussion.  A shared magazine article is used as a spur for the interaction.  If you enjoy stimulating conversations about current issues with a group of critical thinkers, please join us.

Here are the upcoming topics and links to articles. 

September 15 - Fault Lines 

An article about forgiveness: AA woman's quest to free the man convicted of killing her father.
