First the where and when, followed by the why:

6:30 PM  Gift Circle organized by the Connection Action Project (Shelton Hall): The gift circle workshop is for people experiencing transition on the personal, social or economic level, and who are interested in exploring alternative models of interaction and transaction. We will practice new ways to give to and receive from one another with the intention to have a felt experience of healing and communication that can map onto all our relationships, our work and our finances. Bring a material offering, a passion, or a talent to share, and/or a situation where you are blocked and could use support.

7:00 PM Oakland’s Faith Community Responds to Alan Blueford’s Murder by Police (Fellowship Hall): Alan Blueford, high school senior about to graduate from Skyline High School in Oakland, was gunned down fatally by police on May 6. Come to this meeting with the Blueford family to pray, act, and strategize to make sure that what happened to Alan will not happen to anyone else. In partnership with the Interfaith Tent at Oakland.
