Liberal Group Holds Discussion and Education Forum

The liberal group PITY Presbyterians for Inclusivity, Tolerance and Yearning met at First Presbyterian Church of Cosgrove Willows on Tuesday night.  The meeting was to talk about issues that divided them as Presbyterians.

Executive Director Molly Peoples characterized the event as an unmitigated success.  “I think that the meeting went well.  We have decided to have 14 more discussions over the course of 6 months.  This will allow us to really understand each other and we know that education is the only way in which people change.  If everyone just had enough education they would be more tolerant and inclusive.”

The smaller break out sessions at the event were: Proof Texting For the Homosexual, How to Correct Someone Who Is A Young Adult, Duck and Cover (What to do When You Encounter Hostility), Education and Discussion: Our Only Hope and Sophia Loren: Reimagining Films We Love.

PITY will be holding meetings at First Church on Mondays and Wednesdays for the next 6 months at 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and hope to have a large turn out.  Please bring your own lunch.
