Sunday, July 16, 2017 – How Much False Witness Can We Bear?

Sunday, July 16, at 11:00 a.m.  How Much False Witness Can We Bear? – According to author Damian Thompson, counterknowledge is “misinformation packaged to look like fact – packaged so effectively, indeed, that the twenty-first century is facing a pandemic of credulous thinking.” As barefaced lies have been rebranded as “alternative facts,” we may have reached a tipping point in the spread of misinformation and willful disinformation. Rev. Stefan Jonasson

Services are in the Gimli Unitarian Church's landmark building at 76 Second Avenue, near Centre Street. Dress is casual — after all, it's summer!
