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: Rev Sophia DeWitt

Rev Sophia DeWitt, Program Director for East Bay Housing Organizations (EBHO), will be preaching during worship and will lead a Spectrum after worship. From the EBHO.org website: "EBHO is a member-driven organization working to preserve, protect, and create affordable housing opportunities for low-income communities in the East Bay by educating, advocating, organizing, and building coalitions."

"Most people call housing “affordable” when they don’t have to choose between paying rent and buying groceries, when they don’t have to live in crowded or unhealthy conditions, and when they can afford a home that provides a sense of security and community."

Join us to hear about her work, and the affordable housing crisis in the Bay Area.
