Seventies Support Group

Earlier I promised we'd share stories about the years when Rev. David Maynard was our church's minister (1976-1981). We'll start by focusing on the church's involvement in social concerns of the day.

Our church's Sesquicentennial History notes that Rev. Maynard and his wife, Jane, "broadened the social consciousness of members." One of the activities it mentions is "a support group on social problems." I'd love to know more about that support group. What was the format? What kinds of social problems did it address? If you remember that group, and especially if you participated in it, please add a comment to let us know.
