We will have a Called Monthly Meeting on Sunday, June 3 at 1 PM to consider Ministry and Counsel’s recommendation to call Micah Bales and Faith Kelley as co-pastors. We hope you can join us. (The Missionary Outreach and Christian Education meeting that had originally been scheduled for this time is cancelled.)

Trustees and the Choir will meet next Sunday, June 3 at 9:00 AM.

Peace Environment, and Christian Social Concerns will be showing “Healing Justice,” a World Trust film by Shakti Butler, on Friday, June 1. Doors open at 6:30; film starts at 7 PM. The film addresses the question: “How can restorative practices be used to shift the way we address crime and violence in our communities to produce safer, healthier, thriving communities for all?”

The Berkeley Neighborhood Food Project’s next Harvest Day is Saturday, June 9. We want to bring all of the church’s contributions together next Sunday, June 3, so we can give thanks together, and pray for all of the hungry folks in our community. Also if you are available to help on Harvest Day, please contact Pantry Director, Dharma Galang.

AFSC, Church World Service, and the Unitarian Universalist Assoc. are launching an online course (three 1.5-hour sessions in June, July, August) entitled Creating Sanctuary/Changing Ourselves. The purpose is to jump start local groups to do anti-racism self-reflection work and to participate in the Sanctuary movement. Please see Tomi if you would like more information or are interested in joining a BFC group or both.

Please pray for, donate, and/or march with the Poor People’s Campaign. The campaign is committing to 40 days of nonviolent action. It is a national call to moral revival, a mass mobilization led by poor and working people to challenge systemic poverty, racism, militarism and ecological devastation
