Sara used a large white board to write down ideas.

Using ideas from Judith Plaskow, a Jewish feminist and writer at the Manhattan College, Sara asked us to give her the names of God, then only those names of neutral gender. It was hard to avoid male metaphors.

Karyn Lazear thanked everyone for coming and held a short board meeting.

Finally, the raffle prizes were awarded to the lucky ticket holders.
