In The Beginning: Our Origin Stories
September 22 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Human beings have always been fascinated by the question of our own origins: how did we come to be? Throughout history, different cultures have created many stories to explain the birth of humankind. In this Platform we will examine some of these creation stories, to see what we can learn from the myths we have told about our ourselves.
Half of today’s undesignated* collection will be donated to Jamaa Birth Village, which provides affordable access to midwives, doulas, and childbirth education for at-risk women in the St. Louis region; jamaabirthvillage.org.
(*If you pay your membership pledge through the collection, write “pledge” on your check, and it will not be divided.)
