2018 Meeting House Events


Saturday, September 15th, 6:00 pm – In My Father’s House Their Are Many Mansions

“I saw an image two years ago on the front of a newspaper that opened a river of thoughts about how and why people migrate from one place to another. The photo spoke clearly that the subjects of this photo, a Syrian man and his toddler son being turned away at a border crossing, were migrating out of a dire circumstance. I began to want to somehow honor the courage that people find to move away from their home–be it to avoid war, to take advantage of a job opportunity or to follow the love of one’s life across the continent.”  – Emilie Faucher

The show  September 15th will honor of some of the people in and around our community who have chosen to leave their native homes and come to live on American soil. Their cultures will be shared through storytelling, performing and visual arts, and through cuisine. Please gather to celebrate the rich heritages of the world! Suggested donation $10
