GBIO: Interfaith Gathering of Unity, Love, and Strength

(All day)

Location: 

477 Longwood Ave, Boston, MA 02215, USA
The events of Charlottesville, VA have shaken us to the core. We grieve the loss of the dead and pray for the healing of the injured. We despair that today’s neo-nazis feel emboldened to spew hateful venom into the public square with impunity while wearing helmets, wielding shields, and brandishing weapons. We are confounded by all those those who are prone to violence and hatred. The moral fabric of our nation is frayed. We know that you need to do something. Many of you are desperate to be a part of the solution. You want to confront the evil, face it down, expose it to the light of day...

Wampum belts and peacemakers: Unitarian Universalist Church to host Native American presentation | Faith + Values | lancasteronline.com

July 12, 2017
There are many similarities between the Iroquois Constitution and the U.S. Constitution, in part, because Benjamin Franklin and other Founding Fathers gained insight into democracy through their meetings with members of the Six Nations. Those ideals show up in the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights.
The Great Law of Peace is the oral constitution of the Six Nations that comprise the Iroquois Confederacy.  It was crafted by Dekanawidah, also known as The Great Peacemaker, and was written on wampum belts.

Greg Epstein: Humanism in the Age of Trump

(All day)

Location: 

30 John F. Kennedy St, Cambridge, MA 02138, USA
“Don’t Believe in God? You’re Not Alone.” That was one of the slogans on ads adorning Boston’s Red Line T, the New York City Subway, and busses and billboards nationwide, when Greg Epstein’s book Good Without God was published back in 2009. At that moment, atheism and agnosticism were becoming not only more common, but more normal. Greg’s message was that the nonreligious have a positive, inspiring and ethical way of life -- call it humanism if you like the word -- and that “lifestance” had made the world better in countless ways, from its critique of religious hypocrisy in ancient India to...

In these highly polarized times, how do we make our Religious Communities places where people can:

  • Create communities that respect the dignity of differences
  • Focus on relational and communal healing
In this one-day, interactive workshop for community leaders, we will explore the vision of our religious communities as places for "higher ground." Hands-on workshops will offer... Read more about Seeking Higher Ground: Religion and Conflict Transformation
