Last year the Sunday Supper dealt with food security. This year the topic will be immigration and social justice.
We have a potluck "Peace Through Pie" supper at which everyone brings some version of "pie" in the broadest interpretation of what that might mean. Some provide a cultural context for the food brought. Each table will have facilitators to help discuss the topic after the viewing of a relevant film.
Part of this event includes a follow-up action (on Jan 21 or other date tbd) that involves some sort of community action. Under consideration this year is a service project at Posada Esperanza, a transitional housing program for immigrant mothers and children escaping domestic and cultural violence.
While this is at a church it does not have religious overtones - at least it did not last year. Several CFIers attended without having to deal with any sort of evangelism.
