A Prayer For Compassion @ Beech Grove Public Library
May 4 @ 2:30 pm – 4:30 pm

Join us for a free screening of the award winning documentary, A Prayer For Compassion.

The film follows Thomas Jackson on a quest to make a better world for his daughter that crisscrosses America and takes him to Morocco for the UN Climate Conference and throughout the Indian subcontinent to ask the question, “Can compassion grow to include all beings? Can people who identify as religious or spiritual come to embrace the call to include all human and nonhuman beings in our circle of respect and caring and love?”

Drawing on traditions including Christianity — evangelical, Roman Catholic, Eastern Orthodox, Friends (Quakers), Seventh Day Adventism, Unity, and more; Judaism; Islam; Hinduism; Buddhism; Jainism; the Native American tradition; Unitarian Universalism; Zoroastrianism; and the “spiritual but not religious” point of view — A Prayer for Compassion calls on people of faith and spiritual seekers of every stripe to come together to bring about a world in which “The wolf will live with the lamb, the leopard will lie down with the goat, the calf and the lion and the yearling together; and a little child will lead them… (Isaiah 11:6)

The Railway People: A Survivor and a Songwriter with Raymond Meade @ The Speak Easy Broad Ripple
May 5 @ 5:00 pm – 7:30 pm
After visiting Auschwitz, songwriter Raymond Meade found himself searching for a project that could properly commemorate the victims of the Holocaust. “The Railway People” is the result of that search. In 2015, Raymond contacted Holocaust survivor Eva Mozes Kor who agreed to help Raymond make “The Railway People” a reality. The pair returned to Auschwitz together to the selection platform where Eva last saw her parents and sisters decades before. There they recorded Raymond’s original poem “How Could It Be,” which he used in his song “At the Top of the Stairs,” and shot footage that would become “The Railway People.” That was the beginning of a unique and lasting friendship.

The event will consist of a screening of “The Railway People,” a presentation and performance by Raymond, and Q&A. Drinks and food will be available for purchase. Admission is $5 per person. Proceeds will go to CANDLES Holocaust Museum and Education Center.

THE WISDOM TO SURVIVE
What good is intelligence if we don’t have the wisdom to use it
well? We need more than just knowledge of the present issues. How do we use wisdom in order to properly care for our world, ensuring that it and we survive? What is the place of capitalism, of community?
