On Palm Sunday (April 13, 2014) the Logan Square Ecumenical Alliance (LSEA) will be hosting its 3rd annual public witness at the Logan Square monument from 12pm—1pm. As in previous years, we will be gathering to celebrate the very public and political nature of Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem and his call to people of faith to resist the values of empire and seek instead “the kingdom of heaven.”
Building on the success of our December 2013 “Posada for Public Housing,” we will be focusing on issues of housing in Logan Square as we hear testimony from people experiencing eviction and foreclosure and campaigning for quality, affordable public housing. Participants will be invited into conversation with one another about faithful responses to our neighbors’ needs, and provided opportunities to get directly involved.
All are invited to participate in this neighborhood event, regardless of religious affiliation or congregational membership. LSEA congregations will be processing from their respective houses of worship carrying palm branches. People are encouraged to bring snack foods, enough to share with one or two other people, so that no one goes hungry as we listen to our neighbors and dream together about God’s preferred future for our community.
No previous notice is required to attend this event, simply come! More information online at: http://logansquareecumenical.blogspot.com.
