Through The Checkpoint: A Multimedia Project
Through the Checkpoint is a multi-media project created by Rev. Katie Archibald Woodward who writes, “It is created in partnership with the Creative Visions Foundation and is serving in tandem with ongoing efforts to foster justice and peace for all living in the Palestinian-Israeli region by the continued call for equity, human dignity, and the pursuit of a coexistence without occupation. I hope to help our global community gain a fuller picture of life in Palestine/Israel and motivate viewers, like you, to join movements to end a dehumanizing status quo and catalyze peace and equity for Palestinians, Bedouins, and Jewish Israelis alike. ” The Christ child was born into a time and place in which there was “a dehumanizing status quo.” The season of Advent prepares us for Christmas. Advent is a time of unhiding, revealing. Advent calls us to see, look and discover. You are invited to see, look and discover something hard and hopeful about the Holy Land in Through the Checkpoint. Donations benefit the artist and her continuing work. Post 1: http://fccpomona.org/through-the-checkpoint-the-pilgrim.html

    What we're about

    We are a group of open minded people exploring spiritual practices. We are creating a safe space where everyone and their questions are welcome. We are LGBTQ friendly!

    Have you been hurt by religion, have you not found acceptance in a religious group, have you been told “don’t question; just have faith?”. Too often Christianity is used to exclude people, but our experience is that the purpose of Christ is to include people. We find wisdom in the Christian tradition and value Jesus as our spiritual mentor.

    These events are hosted at First Christian Church Pomona, a church community that welcomes straight, gay, richer, poorer, every ethnicity, LGTBQ, and more. All means all.
