The Gospel According to Archy and Mehitabel

Sunday Service August 10: The Gospel According to Archy and Mehitabel: Part One

“It’s surprising what you can learn from a cockroach and an alley cat.” Archy is the cockroach, and Mehitabel is the alley cat. They were the creation of Don Marquis, a columnist for a New York newspaper. Archy used to be a human: specifically, a free verse poet. When he died his soul transmigrated into the body of a cockroach. Mehitabel is his sort-of friend and part-time foil who claims to have once been Cleopatra, though there are grounds for doubt about that. For about twenty years, until the mid-30s, Archy (via Marquis) wrote about Mehitabel, himself, and others in pieces that mocked human foolishness but also promoted a charitable spirit. I think it’s time for Archy to be reincarnated again and for Mehitabel to use another one of her lives, so that we in the present age can hear their voices for ourselves.

Passover, Palm Sunday, and Political Activism

Sunday Service April 13:   Passover, Palm Sunday, and Political Activism
What are the stories of Passover and Palm Sunday about, in the Christian and Jewish scriptures?  Could they be stories about political uprising and activism, in a fight against oppression and injustice?  Could they contain a call for genuine engagement and authentic expression?  Come and hear these ancient stories in a new context, and let Rev. Christiane shake up your sense of Christian and Jewish history and traditions.  Our newest facilitator Jena Rose will help lead this service.
