Historical Jesus Group - Discussion of The Upswing
On second and fourth Thursdays, beginning May 13, at 10:00 a.m., the Historical Jesus Group (HJG) will be discussing the new book, The Upswing: How America Came Together a Century Ago and How We Can Do It Again, by Robert Putnam. The book demonstrates how we have gone from an individualistic “I” society (during the Gilded Age of the late 1800s) to a more communitarian “We” society (by the early 1960s) and then back again (to today’s inequality, political polarization, fraying social fabric, public and private narcissism), and how we can learn from that experience to become a stronger, more unified nation. All are welcome to join the discussion. You can join the next HJG discussion on Thursday, April 22, at 10:00 a.m. on your computer by using this link:
