COMMUNITY CHURCH OF BOSTON
"A Peace & Justice Congregation since 1920"
SEPTEMBER 2012 SUNDAY FORUMS
September 9th -- LINDA JENKINS
"Homecoming Sunday: Water Communion"
Each year we begin a new season of church services and each year is an opportunity for us to honor the various gifts we each bring into this community. The Water Communion is a ritual that has been done in UU congregations for decades, symbolizing the joining of a congregational community in intentional relationship. Please bring water from a place you journeyed to over the summer (or some symbolic tap water) and be ready to share with us about something you learned or experienced over the summer.
Linda Jenkins is the Congregational Director of the Community Church of Boston.
September 16th -- SHAHRZAD NOORBALOOCHI
"An Iranian Voice Against Sanctions and War: Stories from the Iranian Collective Memory"
Shahrzad will discuss her recent trip to Iran where the effects of sanctions has already caused huge increases in lthe price of eggs and other foodstuffs. The Iranian people are well aware that the US is causing the rapid inflation, which is hurting the living standards of the Iranian people -- but ironically may actually strengthen the position of the rulers of the Islamic Republic.
Shahrzad Noorbaloochi is an Iranian-American student. She serves on the Board of Massachusetts Peace Action and is a member of the Boston University Anti-War Coalition.
September 23rd -- BILL CUNNINGHAM
“The Storm Approaches: Public Housing in Cambridge and America”
A wide range of political and financial leaders would like to get rid of America's public housing programs. The current economic crisis has given them an opportunity to move toward that goal. How is this playing out in Cambridge, Mass—the quintessential liberal city?
Bill Cunningham chairs the Assistance and outreach committee for the Alliance of Cambridge Tenants. He has been active in housing struggles over most of his fifty years in Cambridge.
September 30th -- EMILIA DUNHAM
“Trans in Boston”
Emilia will deliver a brief “Transgender 101” training as well as discuss what’s happening in the trans community in the Boston area. She’ll touch on trans health and research, advocacy efforts, community organizing, the social scene and on the individual level.
Emilia Dunham works with Fenway Health's LifeSkills: A Community-Peer-Based Research Study for Young Trans Girls in Boston, is a Commissioner on the Massachusetts Commission on LGBT Youth and is a Massachusetts Transgender Political Coalition Policy Committee Co-Chair.
