tiny rainbow chaliceSunday, March 25th, 5 PM -- FAITH + WORKS: Uncommon Sense -- Pam Shaw

The title, a term used in 12 Step Recovery, is also used to describe how a spiritually reliant life often seems at odds with popular myths or conventional wisdom.

Pam Shaw is an artist and designer who lives and works in the Heights section of Jersey City, NJ. Active in local politics and community groups, including animal rescue, she helps others to recover from alcoholism and addictions (people rescue?). Born in Worcester MA, and raised in New Hampshire, she left home at 15 for bigger cities - first Syracuse NY where she studied art and philosophy, then New York City.

This presentation will be followed by a special dinner, in honor of our new members! Hosted by Darcy Hall and Mindy Fullilove. Please RSVP to office [at] essexuu [dot] org to help us plan for the food, which will come from fabulous local eateries! Thank you!
