Gathering for lament about the border

Standard

Sunday, September 19
7 pm – 8:30 pm, Casa Mariposa
Service for lament

We will host a community space for lament around the pain the border, racism, and SB 1070 is causing us, our families, friends, neighbors, and communities. The evening will include many ways to participate as you choose to through personal reflection and gathering together.

Altars for reflection will line the hallway. Interactive stations in the back yard and living room will offer space to express emotions through art, writing, and rituals that you choose.

The back porch will be filled with pillows and candles. There you can participate with others in prayers, music, readings, and stories, as we listen to one another, and be together.

“You are not alone, for it’s not true that it is only pain that motivates people to continue struggling to make their convictions a reality.
The love of many other people, the support that one has from other people, and above all, the understanding of other people, has a lot to do with it.”

—Rigoberta Menchu
1992 Nobel Peace Prize Winner,
and a leading advocate of Indian rights and ethno-cultural reconciliation
