Javier Flores Garcia Leaves Sanctuary
To the delight of his family, kids, and friends, Javier left sanctuary last Wednesday morning after spending 11 months at ASUMC. The recipient of a special visa for assisting the police whilst being a victim of a crime, Javier is now able to rejoin his family and no longer risk deportation by I.C.E. His case was a rare win within the sanctuary movement, bringing hope to those facing deportation and has brought the attention of media including the New York Times, Washington Post, and ABC News. Throughout the day, his little boy Javier ran through the halls of the office with delight, waiting for everything to be over, happy for his Dad to finally come home. Suffice it to say, it was a very good day. Thank you to everyone for your supported and prayers.
December 10th | Sanctuary | 1pm | Music Director: Adam Haines
On Sunday, December 10 at 1:00pm Adam Haines will present a Concert of Organ and Piano works, featuring Alto Samantha DiPompeo and Trumpeter Ethan Wolfe. The recital will conclude with a time of caroling accompanied by The Arch Street Choir. We ask the Arch Street Community to use this opportunity as an outreach to the broader community.
Singing the Body Electric
Igniting Our Physical Vessel
I am a firm believer in the language of the body; we are, effectively, the physical manifestation of our thoughts, so what is inside of us inevitably “shapes” how we present ourselves in the physical world. Come and travel along with me in a voyage of practice, inquiry, and discovery of the connection between thought and deed as we work our way through social dances of the past and present. Through shared learning we will challenge our brains, bones, and belief—in us as individuals, as a group, as a community!
- When: Wednesday, November 15 – 7 – 8.30 p.m.
- Where: Arch Street United Methodist Church – Nichols Hall (lower level)
- Attire: Dress comfortably, ready to move!
