We are on social media
by Sophia Turner
"Tomorrow" is a very positive, affirming and inspirational film, exploring creative solutions to the crisis of food, energy, transport, economics and education. It visits permaculture farms, urban agriculture projects, community-owned renewable ventures, local currencies, creative schools and ambitious recycling operations.
The film has won the Best Documentary Award in 2016, regularly receives standing ovations, and has led to the formation of many new community projects. It is a great antidote to the current sense of global despondency. It originated in France in 2015 but much of it was filmed in English-speaking countries; other sections have English subtitles. The film consists of 5 sections and lasts 1 h 55 min; it also has a great soundtrack!
Some of the initiatives shown in the film are already taking place in Johannesburg too, such as a street vegetable garden along the pavement, with an invitation to passers-by to help themselves. We are hoping to follow the screening with a talk at a later date from people involved in similar projects.
The film will be shown in the Christian Community Church at 46 Dover Street, Ferndale. We will start at 11:30, break for refreshments after 3 sections and continue to the end, hoping to finish by about 14:00.
Please spread the word to your friends and encourage them to attend the screening. The film is suitable for older children and teenagers.
Donations are most welcome for this fund-raising event, so please bring your cash!
Conscious of our Humanity - discussions led by David Wertheim Aymes
The Epistle at the start of the Trinity services at the Church of Lazarus starts with the words ‘Conscious of our humanity, we feel the Divine Father. He is in all that we are. His substance is our substance’. The opening words of this are expressed as a precondition for our ‘feeling the Divine Father’. We have to be conscious of our humanity before we can ‘feel’ the Divine Father. David Wertheim aymes will be holding regular discussions and interactions at the Church of Lazarus to assist us in understanding this and feeling our divinity and how our divinity is all that we really are in daily life.
These meetings are discussions with input brought from attendees. It is also an experiment to assess whether The Christian Community has content that is relevant today to others living around us, and how best to communicate this content. You are invited to be a part of this.
The Church of Lazarus is located at 46 Dover Street, Randburg. The next discussions will be held on Saturday, 7th July and on Saturday, 21st July at 15h15 until 16h45. For more information and details of subsequent discussions, please visit this page of the website.
The discussion will be facilitated by:
David Wertheim Aymes CA(SA) CEO of the Bosun Group of companies
