“It is useless to attempt to reason a man out of a thing he was never reasoned into”

"The city is crowded my friends are away and I'm on my own
It's too hot to handle so I gotta get up and go

It's a cruel ... cruel summer"

Question War Film Series - this Sunday

Christian Peacemaker Teams "seek to enlist the response of the whole church in conscientious objection to war, and the development of nonviolent institutions, skills and training for intervention in conflict situations." CPT works in the US, Canada, UK, Colombia, Palestine and Iraq.

Their motto is "Committed to reducing violence by getting in the way". And that often means putting their bodies in harm's way.

This Sunday, Question War Film Series presents CPT member Jerry Stein. He's been involved in several actions, and will present a slide show and talk on his experiences in Iraq. Questions and discussion to follow.

Sunday, May 8
2 pm
Downtown Library, 2nd floor

Always free.
