Stanstead Journal - - LEN NOXVILLE NEWS - Sher­brooke,

The2013 In­ter­faith Seder to Free the Wounded Earth and Face the Pharaohs of To­day will have a dif­fer­ent con­no­ta­tion: “Oc­cupy the dream’’.

In the United States, Jewish and Chris­tian peace lead­ers will be join­ing to­gether, pre­par­ing, from the words of Martin Luther King Jr., to «Oc­cupy the Dream”, this Passover and Easter hol­i­day.

“Oc­cupy The Dream”: Join us in Sher­brooke for a Seder to pro­mote Mul­tiRe­li­gious Ac­tion dur­ing the week of Passover & Holy Week (March 24 to April 2), when we join our brothers and sis­ters in the US in “ac­tions against the mod­ern Pharaohs and their mod­ern Cli­mate Plagues, we will pro­mote ac­tions for ten Heal­ings of the Earth.”

You are in­vited to join us here in Sher­brooke, to “Oc­cupy the Dream” and as we sup­port the “Idle No More” move­ment on Mon­day, March 25, 2013, at 6:30pm - at the East­ern Town­ships Passover Seder and Easter Seder for the 99%.

Join, Isaac Ro­mano of the Jewish Com­mu­nity Cen­tre of the East­ern Town­ships, the rev­erend Ca­role Mar­tig­nacco of the Uni­tar­ian Univer­sal­ist of the East­ern Town­ships (UU Estrie), the rev­erend Fa­ther Ree­gan Soo­sai (from In­dia and a won­der­ful new Catholic priest in Sher­brooke), and the ‘’Com­mu­nauté mis­sion­naire des Claré­tains’’, as we come to­gether with our com­mu­ni­ties through­out the East­ern Town­ships this year, over our Passover and Easter hol­i­day sea­son... Our com­bined Seders will speak to our shared de­sire and our work for a world in which love, kind­ness, gen­eros­ity, eth­i­cal and eco­log­i­cal san­ity, awe and won­der at the grandeur of the uni­verse, and com­mit­ment to a higher mean­ing for our lives are val­ued. We will share our Tikkun Olam (He­brew word mean­ing “To re­pair the planet”) for the Heal­ing, Re­pair, and Trans­for­ma­tion of our World. We will do this to­gether and we are invit­ing Chris­tians, Jews, Mus­lims, Baha’is, Bud­dhists, Athe­ists, Ag­nos­tics and any­one else who has suf­fered from the op­pres­sion that “glob­al­iza­tion of self­ish­ness and ma­te­ri­al­ism” is caus­ing.
