We have two things for you this week.
First, our topic for Monday: Don’t believe everything your parents tell you! Listen to Zak Ebrahim’s TED Talk from nearly two years ago: www.ted.com/talks/zak_ebrahim_i_am_the_son_of_a_terrorist_here_s_how_i_chose_peace, and come ready to discuss the implications of what he shares. We’re at Life’s Too Short Brewing Company again, from 5:30-7pm.
Second, an opportunity coming in early March: RAWtools (an organization facilitating nonviolent solutions to conflict) is planning an event in Chicago, where a metalworker will take a gun and form it into a garden tool as a physical symbol of peacemaking. See rawtools.org/peacemaker-tour/ and www.facebook.com/RAWtoolsInc/ for more info. The plan is to take a bit of a road trip: drive to Chicago on Friday March 4th, stay overnight, possibly with a host congregation, and then drive back to Rochester on Saturday.
See you at the Pub.
