Looks like I’ll be spending a few days down at the Lockerbie Central UMC/Earth House this week. First, Doug Pagitt will be returning to Indianapolis this Monday as a part of his A Christianity Worth Believing book tour.

Description: Part revival/book reading/hootenanny/communal gathering, Doug Pagitt and Erik Johnson are spreading the Hope-filled, Open-armed, Alive and Well faith in homes, churches, bars, coffee shops and public meeting spaces around the country.

Live Occurrences are part one-man show (even though there are two of them), part revival, part book reading, part hootenanny, and part communal gathering. The 2-hour Live Occurrences include readings from the book, music – original and covers, video, spoken-word poetry, impassioned invitations to be part of the common good. Live Occurrences are specially formulated for the Left-out, Left-behind and Let-down, and will be suitable for one and all regardless of background.

(For those on my local friends list, come down a little early, say 4:00 p.m.-ish, to help set up and hang out.)

Do the Right Thing Turns 20!

I tweeted about this a month or so back and the fellas down at Lockerbie Central UMC/Earth House decided that it was momentus enough an occasion to rate its own special screening. Not only did President Barack and Michelle Obama see this movie on their first date, but the movie played an important role in my personal and spiritual journey.

Description: It’s the hottest day of the summer. You can do nothing, you can do something, or you can … Do the Right Thing.

Directed by visionary filmmaker Spike Lee, Do the Right Thing is one of the most thought-provoking and groundbreaking films of the last 20 years. The controversial story centers around one scorching inner-city day, when racial tensions reach the boiling point in a tough Brooklyn neighborhood.

It’ll be a good week. Come Join Us!
