When: Sunday, June 5, 2016, 11:00 am to 1:00 pm

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.

The film Watchers of the Sky interweaves four stories of remarkable courage, compassion and determination, while setting out to uncover the forgotten life of Raphael Lemkin - the man who created the word "genocide", and who believed that international law could protect the world from mass atrocities.  Inspired by Samantha Power's Pulitzer Prize-winning book, A Problem from Hell, Watchers of the Sky takes us on a provocative journey from Nuremberg to The Hague, from Bosnia to Darfur, from criminality to justice, and from apathy to action.
