Cloud Cottage Community Stands Against Racism

8 May

From Rev. Judith Toy:

We are Cloud Cottage Community of Mindful Living, students of Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh. We offer a regular Wednesday evening gathering as well as Sunday morning service followed by tea in our tea-room. This past Sunday, for the YWCA Stand Against Racism, we led a tea discussion focusing on our personal experiences with racism, and how we have dealt with this fact of life. We were shocked to learn of some of the white supremicist activity right here in our little town of Black Mountain, and hoped that we would not develop a “them and us” attitude toward those who are so wrongly full of hate. We enjoyed an informative and fruitful discussion which raised our community awareness.
