SummaryJoin us for Civic Saturday, a gathering for fellowship and common purpose. RSVP is encouraged.
DescriptionCivic Saturday is a periodic gathering convened by Citizen University to help be civic analogue to church or synagogue and temple. It includes song, readings of civic scripture (great and provocative American texts), a secular sermon, silent reflection. But mainly it’s about fellowship. In a time of deep anxiety and political polarization, people feel a need to reckon with the meaning of our nation’s creed — and to do so face-to-face with others.
