Affirming Our Love – A Space to Dialogue and Sing
It’s time to re-root ourselves in the rich soil of community. In 2016, our values were tested as we viewed a tumultuous theatre of politics – a drama that is playing out in our communities, our bodies, and our hearts. Help us reinvigorate our values of love for our community. Through singing and dialogue we will not make a referendum on any political parties or individuals, but, in the fresh transition to 2017, we will fill this space with affirmations of love. Community and faith-based leaders will guide discussions. Choirs from Butler University, Goshen College, Earlham College, Grace Tabernacle Church Congolese Choir and Indianapolis Women’s Chorus will lead and perform music to contextualize our conversations. You do not have to be a singer to participate. All are welcome and the conversations will be child-friendly. The event is free and open to the public. This event is in joint cooperation with The Desmond Tutu Center, The Center for Interfaith Cooperation, Butler University’s Center for Faith and Vocation, and Butler’s School of Music.
The event will be held Saturday, January 28, from 5:00-7:00pm at the First Mennonite Church, 4601 Knollton Rd. in Indianapolis.
