If you were to draw a circle around who is important to you ~ who would be inside it? You and your lover, family and friends? Your community or parts of it? Your country? The world? Just how large are you willing to draw the circle?
On Friday, May 8th at 7pm at the Congregational Church of Patchogue, (Long Island), 95 East Main Street, NY, 11772, ~ we will draw an intentionally diverse group of people into a circle of peace and joy. With the sharing of food, stories, music, silence and many other delicious treats for the mind, belly and soul ~ we will craft a creative response to the small circles of hate and fear that some people and groups draw in attempts to confine and define us. This gathering is the second in an ongoing series that began in response to terrorist and other hideous acts around the world. Music by Jack’s Waterfall; food offerings by Enrico Imperiale, and more to be announced. There is no admission fee, but donations to defray expenses would be gratefully received in advance (hopefully) or at the event.
