Gordon Wyse

The earth is finite and inextensible. Capitalism as an economic system depends on continuous growth and utilization of natural resources. This conflict results in degradation of the earth by resource depletion and population increases. What must be done to create an alternative economic system that is sustainable and non-exploitative?

Gordon Wyse is an active member of UUSA. He is a retired Biologist whose concerns about climate change and social inequality have recently dragged him into an examination of economic systems. He also likes to sing, travel and learn new stuff.

Community Breakfast Every Wednesday

The Unitarian Universalist Society of Amherst, in partnership with Craig's Doors - a Home Association, Inc., serves breakfast from 8:00 a.m. - 10:00 a.m. every Wednesday in our Willie Eaton Social Hall.

The breakfast is open to the public free of charge and everyone is welcome to attend.

These Wednesday breakfasts are exactly the kind of service to the community that our congregation was foreseeing when we voted to to remain in downtown Amherst and expand our meetinghouse. We are grateful to Craig's Doors for its vision as well.

Craig's Doors operates Craig's Place, an emergency shelter, from November 1 - April 30 at First Baptist Church in Amherst.
