October 9 (Special Date): Justice Across Borders followed by a Debate Watch party

Join us at a special date, and a different location, this October. Noah Bullock, Executive Director of Cristosal will be with us. Cristosal is a fast-growing Anglican Human Rights and Social Justice organizing group based in El Salvador. On the national holiday weekend named for Christopher Columbus, Holy Communion is exploring a relationship with El Salvador. Columbus day has come into controversy in recent years. We thought there was no better time to look at issues of justice that continue to connect North America and Central America.

After Noah’s presentation, stick around for a debate watch party. We’ll watch the candidates for president as the speak from Washington University on the big screens.

Aug 2: “God and Guns?” with The Rev. Marc Smith

After a violent summer, many across our country, including people of faith, are asking questions about gun violence. What are the public health challenges raised by high gun-ownership? Is the “right to bear arms” a sacred right? How can we alleviate the suffering happening especially in communities of color?

Our presenter, the Rev. Marc Smith has been newly named the Deputy for Gun Violence Prevention by Bishop Wayne Smith, bishop of the Episcopal church in the diocese of Missouri. Marc had a 35 year academic medicine and health care executive career before becoming an Episcopal priest. He has served on multiple local, regional and national health care boards and commissions.

June 7: “Faith and Pride” with The Rev. Mike Angell

June marks LGBT Pride month across the United States. The Rev.
