July 3, 2007
The time has come for our next Transmission, and this week we’ll be breaking into a new borough. Elaina will be hosting at her flat in the South Bronx – it just wouldn’t be the fourth of July without a backyard and a grill.
In the spirit of Independence Day, our ritual this week will be focusing on the problematic relationships between patriotism and religiosity, nationalism and pacifism, and the separation of church and state. We’ll also break out with some Taize music and some hamburgers. Please come and feel welcome to bring food!
For those of us who live in Manhattan, the other boroughs can seem hopelessly distant, but I promise you that Elaina’s place is as easy to get to as anybody else’s – she lives on two different express trains (the 2 and the 5), so it’s a quick trip no matter which side of the island you live on.
Transmission, as usual, will start in the neighborhood of 7pm and end around 9pm.
All are welcome!¬† Contact us if you’d like directions.
See ya’ll on July 4th!
