New Book on Immigrant Justice Going to Press

Our first Webinar on the theme: “Occupy Advent!  Luke’s Christmas Story and Posadas as a Public Liturgy of Resistance” was a success.  More than 60 participated in the free session, which looked at the Mexicano Advent tradition of Posadas (“Shelters”) as a public performance of Luke’s Christmas story, and at how immigrant rights activists re-contextualize this tradition at the U.S. Mexico border as liturgical and political theater.  During the webinar Ched read excerpts of his new book, co-authored with Rev. Matthew Colwell, Our God is Undocumented: Biblical Faith and Immigrant Rights.  
The book is about to go to print Orbis Books, and will be available in February.  Those of you in the area are invited to a book party on Presidents’ Day holiday: Feb 20, 3-6 pm here in Oak View.  Email us for more information.
