Voices from the Heart Brunch 2017 | June 11
Voices from the Heart — the annual brunch sponsored by the ASC Women’s Community — is always a stellar event … and never more so than this year as the community honors the inimitable Alma Stokes. Alma will share not only the story of her faith journey but invite us into experiencing the music that inspires it. Soloist Elizabeth Tatum and pianist Pat Kelly will accompany her journey with spirituals and meaningful songs in Alma’s life.
The greatest dis-ease facing humanity is our profound and painful disconnection–and division? sometimes from God and ourselves, and from each other and our earth. How do we heal? How do we face injustice and evil? In this latest Conspire event, Richard Rohr offers us the opportunity to begin with a foundational “yes” to who we are and what is.
A Conscientious Projector Presentation
May 11 | 7:00 p.m. | Armory Center for the Arts
It is commonly accepted in environmental activism circles that consumerism in America and other parts of the world has been a key driver of global climate change. This fascinating documentary from Happen Films offers an alternative vision focusing on the intentional community of Wurruk’an in Gippsland Australia, where a group of (mostly) millennials engaged in a challenging but enlightening year-long experiment in simple living, organic farming, energy descent and building tiny houses. Their devoted efforts emerge as meaningful personal choices for living in alignment with the natural world and for collectively taking corrective measures addressing modern day environmental, economic and social crises.

Monday, May 1 | 10:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m.
May 1st is a day of action, prophetic resistance and witness to the pain and suffering occurring in our communities. On May 1st, we join with others across the nation to stand with the oppressed, to march for rights and lift up the voices and stories of working families in Los Angeles. Muslims. Immigrants. Workers. Unions. Women. The LBGT community. Sanctuary cities. And anyone who dares to speak the truth to power. We will respond and resist in the spirit of King and Milk. Huerta and Chavez. March with us on May 1 from MacArthur Park to LA’s City Hall as we show the world what real power looks like.

On Sunday, April 23, 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. in Sweetland Hall, enjoy and support the creative work of foster children and youth – paintings, drawings, photographs, and sculpture. All artwork is for sale and all proceeds go to the artists.
These works portray young artists’ perceptions of the world around them, “with liveliness, directness and intelligence,” according to show curator, Jay Belloli.
All Saints will celebrate Earth Day on the lawn on Sunday, April 23. This event has added importance this year because the Church and the Climate Change Task Force, through the passage of a vestry resolution, committed to efforts to go carbon-neutral, and to encourage and assist with the All Saints Community becoming carbon-neutral as well. The first step in that effort is nearly complete with the conversion of all Church lighting to efficient LEDs, partially using a Pasadena Water and Power rebate of close to $47,000.
