"What Would Gandhi Do?" with Dave Lewit

When: Sunday, October 22, 2017, 11:00 am to 1:30 pm
Where: Community Church of Boston • 565 Boylston Street, 2nd floor • Boston

With Americans and the world facing climate or nuclear doom, and with irresponsible corporations in charge, can we the people get it together to save us all? Or are we looking for a new savior to point the way? Because Gandhi’s experience was close to our times, and because he helped liberate 400 million people (with questionable results), can his non-violent, spiritual-political approach work in the USA? Let’s explore this, considering the difficult role of empathy in positive power.

"Hope's Alive" with Frida Berrigan

When: Sunday, September 24, 2017, 11:00 am to 2:00 pm
Where: Community Church of Boston • 565 Boylston Street, 2nd floor • Boston

Where is our hope? How do we find it, feed it, share it? I'm finding hope in sanctuaries of silence and the eyes of friends. I'm feeding hope in the streets crowded with people shouting "Black Lives Matter," "No Justice, No Peace" and "Love Trumps Hate." I'm sharing hope by not shirking away from hard truths and hard work. I'm rescued from hopelessness by my children's laughter and their relentless appetite for life despite its contradictions, challenges and conflict.
