COMMUNITY CHURCH OF BOSTON
"A Peace & Justice Congregation since 1920"
OCTOBER 2012 SUNDAY FORUMS
October 7th -- Indigenous Peoples’ Day
JIMI TWO FEATHERS
"Occupation, Decolonization and the Struggles of Native Peoples"
Jimi Two Feathers will help us consider the language of "occupation" in light of the history of native peoples on this continent. What next steps might be available to us, in light of the expressions of solidarity of some groups of indigenous people with the Occupy Movement, and of various Occupys with indigenous people, notwithstanding the problematic nature of the language prevalent in and about the current movement?
Jimi Two Feathers is a skilled facilitator and teacher who has been drumming and dancing for over thirty years. He has been involved with Occupy Boston's People of Color and Anti-Oppression Working Groups, and is a founder of Earth Drum Council, a group that focuses on drumming as a tool for healing, community-building, cultural awareness, and personal growth.
October 14th -- FELIPE TOBAR & ANA NAVARRETE
"25 Years of Struggle, 25 Years of Solidarity: Sister Cities Cambridge & San Jose Las Flores, El Salvador"
The struggle for dignity, peace, the right to land and sovereignty in El Salvador is embodied in the community of San José Las Flores – boldly and defiantly repopulated in 1986 in the midst of the US-backed war. Since 1986, the people of Las Flores have built a community where education, health care, housing, livelihood and political governance extend to every person. They have stood with other organized communities and movements in El Salvador and international solidarity efforts including partnering as a sister city with Cambridge in 1987.
Felipe Tobar is the mayor of Las Flores and Ana Navarrete is town council president.
October 21st -- DON WHITE
“Blasphemy, Heresy, Comedy, Poetry, Beauty, Love!!!”
There is no one-word description for what Don White does. He has survived and thrived for twenty years, bringing his audiences to laughter and tears in his live performances, studio recordings, and on the printed page. He is a storyteller-comedian-author-troubadour-folk singer-songwriter. He is a walking challenge to the phrase “file under.” Best to just sort him under “Don White.” At every point, White has been the ultimate observer, infusing his work with his experiences as a husband, a father, a seeker, and a joker.
October 28th -- JILL BAKER
“Waking Up and Overcoming: A Unitarian Universalist Response to the Israel-Palestine Conflict”
What actions do Unitarian-Universalist principles, history and values call us to take in the movement to end the occupation and human rights abuses in Israel/Palestine?
Jill Baker is a member of the First Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Ann Arbor, Michigan where she serves on the Social Justice Council, the Immigration Study/Action Team, and is co-chair of her local Unitarian Universalists for Justice in the Middle East (UUJME) chapter. She was also the 2012 winner of the UUJME’s “Sermon of the Year” contest.
