Film Series: "Bag It"

Try going a day without plastic. Plastic is everywhere and infiltrates our lives in unimaginable and frightening ways. In this touching and often flat-out-funny film, we follow "everyman" Jeb Berrier, who is admittedly not a tree hugger, as he embarks on a global tour to unravel the complexities of our plastic world. What starts as a film about plastic bags evolves into a wholesale investigation into plastic and its effect on our waterways, oceans, and even our own bodies.

Spectrum: Film "Call Me Malcolm"

Spectrum: Film "Call Me Malcolm"

You can't say the word transgender and people really know what you're talking about. But anybody who says the word transgender means something different by it anyway, so it really is a story and not just a label. - Malcolm

Call Me Malcolm is an amazing story of the human spirit and God's spirit, and the liberating struggle to realize and express with confidence the marvelous gift of one's truest sense of self. As Malcolm shares his own story and through the stories of others we meet, Call Me Malcolm offers us a glimpse into the real lives of real people who are transgender. But it is only a glimpse. There are many stories to be told and Malcolm helps us make connections to our own stories, encouraging us to share them. That can seem daunting in a culture which has done more to heap shame on persons who identify as transgender. The good news of Malcolm's story is the way in which shame and fear are overcome by grace, compassion and knowledge. Viewers cannot help but come to a deeper understanding of faith, love, and gender identity, and by doing so, arrive at a deeper understanding of their own journey.

A Workshop with Vajra Voices

Vajra Voices is excited to announce its latest initiative: a one-day vocal workshop on Le Lai de la Fonteinne by Guillaume de Machaut (c.1300-1377), supported in part by a grant from the California Arts Council in partnership with the San Francsico Early Music Society. This landmark work by one of the titans of medieval culture is both a tribute to the Virgin Mary and an extended reflection on the Holy Trinity, presented in twelve movements, alternating solos and three-part polyphony. Workshop participants will have the opportunity to work on selected portions of the Lai, exploring issues of vocal technique, poetic interpretation, medieval French pronunciation, and rehearsal process with Vajra Voices director, Karen R. Clark, and ensemble members Allison Zelles Lloyd and Amy Stuart Hunn. Fee: $85 (includes catered lunch); $75 for High School and University Students

First Thursday Fellowship

Thursday, May 5th  FTF (First Thursday Fellowship) for Everyone!  Come for a pot luck supper and to see Hidden Figures, an Academy Award Nominated  movie for 2017!  --Social Hour 6 pm, supper 6:30, movie 7 - 9.

For those of us, you will have memories of this historical event but you may not know this part of the Sputnik race story. “As the United States raced against Russia to put a man in space, NASA found untapped talent in a group of African-American female mathematicians that served as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in U.S. history. Based on the unbelievably true life stories of three of these women, known as "human computers", we follow these women as they quickly rose the ranks of NASA alongside many of history's greatest minds specifically tasked with calculating the momentous launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit, and guaranteeing his safe return. Dorothy Vaughan, Mary Jackson, and Katherine Johnson crossed all gender, race, and professional lines while their brilliance and desire to dream big, beyond anything ever accomplished before by the human race, firmly cemented them in U.S. history as true “American heroes.”
