  • Morning Prayer Group: We Make The Road by Walking by Brian McLaren

    Tuesdays, 8–8:30am in the Pastor’s Office

    This book’s fifty-two brief readings offer a way to explore the difference a living, growing faith can make in our world today. Each reading includes a section called “Engage” that will form the basis of our conversations. Suitable for learners of all ages.

     

    Come and share this time with others on the journey. No prayer experience necessary. 

  • Poor People’s Campaign Mass Meeting

    Tuesday, October 17, 7:00pm

    Free and open to the public.

     

    Join co-chairs Rev. Dr. William J. Barber II and Rev. Dr. Liz Theoharis for a Mass Meeting for the Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival to learn about the inspiration, vision and strategy of the PPC, as well as the findings of the Truth Commission on Poverty in New York State. The Poor People's Campaign will build a broad and deep national moral fusion movement — rooted in the leadership of the poor and dispossessed as moral agents and reflecting the great moral teachings — to unite our country from the bottom up.

     

    The call for a Poor People’s Campaign has emerged from more than a decade of work by grassroots community, religious leaders and organizations, and movements fighting to end systemic racism, poverty, militarism, environmental destruction, and related injustices and to build a just, sustainable, and participatory society. We draw on the history, vision, and unfinished work of the 1968 Poor People’s Campaign.

     

    There is a resounding call to save the very soul of this nation: We need a new Poor People’s Campaign for a Moral Revival in America. It is time to become a new and unsettling force in our complacent national life.

  • Faith for a Fair New York Conference

    Wednesday, October 18, 9am–6pm

    This conference will bring together faith, labor, and community leaders from across New York with leaders of the Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival, including the Rev. Dr. William Barber.

     

    We will release a report on the Truth Commission on Poverty in New York State’s findings, learn about the national Poor People’s Campaign launching in 2018, and discuss ways to build a stronger statewide movement for economic, social, and racial justice in New York.

     

    Join us as we delve more deeply into the Truth Commission's findings, learn about economic and racial justice issues facing New York, and discuss plans for participating in the Poor People's Campaign and strengthening a moral movement in New York State.

     

    Registration: $75/person. Financial assistance is available to those who need it. Please do not let a lack of funds keep you from attending!

  • Evicted: Poverty and Profit in the American City by Matthew Desmond

    Mondays, October 23 & 30 and November 6, 6:15–7:30pm

    “After reading Evicted, you’ll realize you cannot have a serious conversation about poverty without talking about housing.” —New York Times

     

    The winner of the 2017 Pulitzer Prize in General Nonfiction, Evicted follows eight low-income families in Milwaukee through two years of their struggle to find and maintain housing. Reading this book makes it impossible to take the luxury of a stable living situation for granted.
