MARCH 2013 SUNDAY FORUMS
March 3rd -- MARK SOLOMON
“The Transforming Potential of the Political Moment”
In a moment of festering economic crisis and undisguised class warfare against working people, resistance is also growing. Movements to prevent environmental catastrophe, defend social programs under fierce attack and to end military interventions and war need a strong, principled voice on the left. That voice is needed to connect the issues, unite the movement and advance a vision of a just new society.That is a crucial task well worth exploration and realization.
Mark Solomon, Professor Emeritus of History at Simmons College.. He has written scores of articles on African American history, race and racism, U.S. foreign policy, globalization, and war and peace issues which have appeared in both scholarly and popular journals.
March 10th -- Marking International Women's Day
WOMEN’S INTERNATIONAL LEAGUE FOR PEACE AND FREEDOM
International Women’s Day is annually held on March 8 to celebrate women’s achievements throughout
history and across nations.
WILPF works to create an environment of political, economic, social and psychological freedom for all members of the human community, so that true peace can be enjoyed by all.
March 17th -- St. Patrick's Day weekend
KEVIN DEVINE & FRIENDS
"St. Patrick's Day 'The Battle of the Bogside' film, August, 1969"
A peaceful march for civil and human rights in Derry, Northern Ireland joins with a protest against the loyalist "Apprentice Boys" parade which marches past the nationalist area of the Bogside thereby triggering nationalist resistance. The Bogside resistance and widespread rebellion in other parts of the North of Ireland became known as the "Troubles". Kevin and Friends discuss these events and their relevance to today.
March 24th -- LEE FICH
In celebration and honor of Passover we will gather for our annual Liberation Seder. This is the time when we remember the Jewish story of resistance and come together as a community to celebrate the timeless story of overcoming injustice and choosing to remember the connection to all struggles for liberation. Please remember to bring a potluck dish to share. This is an especially good Sunday to bring friends and family!
Lee Fich is a long time friend of the church who has led the Passover Seder for many years now.
March 31st -- LINDA JENKINS
“On Being God's Fool”
March 31st is Easter for the western church and the following is April Fool's Day. Consider their initially incongruous meeting place: the razor's edge where experiments with truth may lead to speaking that truth to power.
