He will also pay specific attention to an analysis of how the military junta and the presence of ISIS are interpreted from the viewpoints of tourists.
Please join us. Services begin at 10:30am.

"Supporting Each Other and Positive Mental Health"
Naila will discuss ways in which we can be there for others in their difficult times, especially when people are facing emotional trauma. She is interested in discussing people of all ages but does have a particular interest in the importance of ensuring that young students feel safe, respected, supported and free from bullying in school. She feels that it is only when these conditions are met that a student can have a positive educational experience and achieve their true potential. Naila Mahmood studied political science and government relations and worked for a local MP. She ran in the 2018 election to be a public school trustee and lost to the incumbent, but Naila impressed the winner so much that after the election the winner asked Naila to spend time sharing her ideas for education with the winner which seems like a high compliment and quite unusual politically.
Many of our members and guests are sensitive to the chemicals in strongly scented products. Please refrain from wearing perfume, aftershave and other scented products when you visit us.
