The Role of Labor in American History
It is widely asssumed America was built by a small, distinct group of rugged men. A closer look at history tells a different story, however, and the millions of ordinary working women and men deserve recognition for what they have done. Waylon has been a member of the Union Boilermakers for 22 years. A labor rights activist and amateur historian of the labor movement, he is currently the president of the North Dakota AFL-CIO.
Summer Services Description
On Sunday mornings in the summer, our format is relaxed and informal as we sit together in small circle groups suited to encourage conversation. We will have music and a thought-provoking reading followed by small group discussion with coffee and fellowship after service concludes. Children's religious education are suspended during the summer; however, children are welcome at service.
