Russell Library, 123 Broad Street, Hubbard Room

Russell Library is Middletown’s public library, offering a wide variety of resources, services and programs to the the city’s residents including the Wesleyan community.  This fall Russell Library is developing a strategic plan, and Library Director Art Meyers is seeking input from the community:

When people and ideas come together this fall to participate in Russell Library’s planning project, good things will happen for the Library and for all of Middletown.   Everyone who cares about Middletown and Russell Library can be part of the Library’s planning project. You and your ideas are welcome because those ideas will shape the future. 

“Why is the church responsible for so much injustice?”

The title of this blog post, I have you know, is the actual name provided for this event. Though, perhaps a pithier title would have been less… uh, confusing. But then again, the goal was probably to be provocative.

When I first saw this submission sitting in the Wesleying inbox, I was inclined to sending a follow-up email to its submitter Joyce Wong ’12 to check if, indeed, this is but a mere instance of trolling. But, I decided to have a little faith instead, and run with it. If this is indeed an instance of somebody pulling a fast one – folks over at the Wesleyan Christian Fellowship, do let me know. I’ll get my baseball bat. Anyway,

Why is the church responsible for so much injustice? Why are Christians such hypocrites?

Wesleyan Christian Fellowship would like to host a discussion/conversation hour for anyone and everyone to express their opinions, thoughts whatever about the question.

Tea, hot chocolate and snacks will be provided!
