Khury Petersen-Smith: "'Resisting Four More Years' of US empire"

When: Sunday, December 11, 2016, 11:00 am to 1:30 pm
Where: Community Church of Boston • 565 Boylston Street, 2nd floor • Boston

Donald Trump is entering the White House with a racist nationalism, a naked xenophobia, and a cavalier attitude toward using military violence–including nuclear weapons. We can expect more belligerence abroad and racism here from his administration. But with the US at war since its creation, and the eight-year expansion of war during the Obama Administration, US violence will not begin with Trump. Khury Peterson-Smith will discuss the US empire historically and today, and why it goes far beyond the question of who occupies the White House.

When: Sunday, June 5, 2016, 11:00 am to 1:00 pm
Where: Community Church of Boston • 565 Boylston Street • 2nd floor • Boston

A sea-change is taking place in the way churches approach their homeless neighbors, and the programs they create to respond to neighbors in need. In this talk Kate Layzer will try to describe that change, what’s important about it, and how it is being expressed in several different area ministries in the Boston area, including a program she founded last year, the Friday Cafe, where she focuses on building community between housed and homeless, mainstream and marginalized.
