ALL ARE WELCOME! You BELONG at Beacon. Spiritually open and intentionally inclusive since 1958.
Why are there so many unsheltered people in America and what are the factors that have led to this epidemic? How do NIMBY attitudes, callous politicians, and deep-pocket developers impact the availability of affordable housing? What stereotypes and unconscious biases do we possess about the unsheltered and how does this impact our empathy and advocacy? With the recent “Point in Time” count of the unsheltered in our town completed and with dinner guests at the Flagstaff Food Center and occupancy at local shelters at an all-time high, we’ll think “inside the box” together about homelessness. Rev. Robin Landerman Zucker, preaching, with Worship Associate Linda Ochi. Music from Austin Shaw and the Beacon Choir, under the direction of Andrez Alcazar. Social Justice Witness from Kelly Wells, Program Manager of Sharon Manor. After the service, we will assemble Care Bags for the Unsheltered – you can still bring items.
