Amy Brenneman and the Fight for Reproductive Justice

Sunday, November 27

On June 27, 2016, the U.S. Supreme Court issued a historic decision striking down a Texas law designed to shut down most of the state’s abortion clinics with medically unnecessary restrictions. The decision in Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt reaffirmed a woman’s constitutional right to access legal abortion, and was called “one of the most significant abortion-related ruling from the Court in more than two decades.”  And All Saints’ own Amy Brenneman was right in the middle of that historic decision.

One Book One Church: Find Your Way Home

by Christina Honchell and Mike Kinman

A friend recently sent me a video of Joni Mitchell singing “California” in 1970, and it’s been in my head ever since, and especially as I think of Homecoming. If you know the song, you know it could be our state anthem –- it’s what I always sing to myself on my way back home from anywhere beyond our golden state: “ah, but my heart cried out for you…”

Making Art in this Time of War with Seema Sueko

Sunday, August 28

“When I watch the news, check social media, or read the newspaper, today feels so angry and full of hate. I feel we are a nation at war with itself. The Fantasticks is a musical that ultimately  teaches us how to love. We learn this by watching  Matt and Luisa’s journey: the false happy ending love, the  pulling apart and hurting each other, and finally, the return  and learning how to love deeply, maturely, selflessly. It’s a  lesson that is sorely needed today.”
