Next Week’s Roundtable

Sun, Dec 10, 2017 Roundtable: Border Violence: militarization and identity formation 

Jorge Rodriguez is the presenter.

Mr Rodriguez is a Field Organizer for ACLU of New Mexico Regional Center for Border Rights.  The various intersections influencing interior border checkpoint (IBC) crossing experiences of brown, borderland residents is unique in that it has become normalized. This presentation looks at the conscious/subconscious process or actions that individuals take to meet the dominant view of what ‘normal’ or ‘non-suspect’ might be as a minimization of suspicion technique (MST). Jorge also will discuss whether IBC crossings influence the way borderland residents identify themselves in a region that is continuously influenced by colonial residual ideologies and institutions.

 

Next Sunday’s Service

12/17/2017 9:00 am

Keeping the Flame of Hope Alive

Services at 9:00 and 10:30 AM. Third Sunday in Advent. This Sunday falls in the middle of the Jewish festival of Hanukkah, an 8-day commemoration of the Maccabean overthrow of colonial rule. A Talmudic story tells how a jug of oil expected to last only one night, burned instead for eight. How do we keep the flame alive in these challenging times? How do we sustain strength and courage when events around us threaten to deplete us?
