Sunday, October 23 - "A Portable Sanctuary" - Rev. DL Helfer
Today we harken back to early Judaism to consider what sanctuary is, where we find it, and how, even, we carry it with us.
Greeters: Kathy/ Joan C.
Rev DL Helfer is non-binary, and in general, avoids boxes that trap them into “this” or “that.” Instead, they search for possibility, for deeper truths, and share those glimmers of possibility with others. Rev. DL is presently pursuing a Master of Social Work and serving as a hospital chaplain. They hail from Southern California but now call Providence, RI home. They share that home with their beloved partner and their 20-year-old cat. 

Sunday, October 30 - "Wampanoag Art for the Ages" - Lee Roscoe
Lee Roscoe of Brewster, an author, poet, playwright, and actress, will speak about her new book Wampanoag Art For the Ages.
Greeters: Deb/ Joe

A Silent Transformation
Saturday, November 5th  |  9:30 AM
NR | 1h 10min | Documentary
The cooperative movement was built by people who took on the responsibility for their collective well-being in the face of government neglect, economic exclusion, and cultural discrimination. As the modern economy increasingly denies vast sectors of the population basic amenities for a decent life, this co-operative spirit is as critical as ever. However, over the years the co-op sector has become insular and poorly understood.
A Silent Transformation sets out to explore the innovative self-help efforts of different communities across the Province of Ontario, Canada. By addressing their needs collectively they are helping to regain the radical vision of cooperation. In these communities are the seeds of economic democracy, global solidarity, and a new popular movement to transform society! Will it grow and flourish?
