Pilgrims and Strangers
Strangers and Pilgrims receives its name from an abandoned, boarded up Black church on Barrow Street just above Colonel Glenn. The name of the church describes so many of us that it stuck and became what we call our weekly Adult Education Class. Topics are philosophical, psychological, artistic, political, spiritual, and religious. And they change every Sunday. We try to enforce the rule that no one can speak a second time or more until everyone speaks a first time. Meets weekly before service on Sunday. See the Calendar or the current Outer Circle for the schedule and topic.
