The video features three Black Lives Matter leaders – Shaun King, Tamika Mallory, and Edwin Lindo – discussing how white people can best engage in the debates and struggles for racial justice today. Join us on Sunday, October 28 in Room 207 (upstairs) for our next topic “I was a stranger and you welcomed me…” when Saher Mirza and Dr. Rabia Jafri will join us to discuss their work as community advocates for refugee services and resettlement support in the Hampton Roads area.

Our Village Bakery will be filled with cakes, pies, and many other delights. The Church Mouse Gift Shop plus vendors and crafters will offer wonderful items for gifts and Christmas. Order a fresh cut Christmas tree or wreath or purchase your fall pansies. You can pick up something to eat while shopping and there will be raffles and a great door prize.
