April 2017 Meeting
The date is April 26 (fourth Wednesday as usual). Again, gathering at 6:00 for soup and a simple supper. Our meeting begins at 7:00.
There will be a short follow-up discussion on the effort to refocus on Nonviolence in church teaching and the program effort by Pax Christi International. Next, we will see a short (20 minute) documentary about children traveling from Central America to the U.S. in search of their families.
We will put some energy into our May project—the showing of a new film at the Angelika on May 24. The filmmaker, Regis Tremblay, will be with us that evening for a Q & A after the film. This is a big deal, so please be thinking about how to get information to lots of people. It will be free and open to the public, so cost will not be a hindrance. Much to talk about. the title of the film is 30 Seconds to Midnight. It’s brand new. Don’t confuse with another entitled 3 Minutes to Midnight.
If you have anything else you would like to place on the agenda, please feel free to do so. Also, any announcements of coming events, etc. Please let me know if you are coming. And if you are a first timer and need directions to my house, call 214-357-2173.
You will want to know that the husband of one of our long-time members, Margaret Gillett died a few days ago. His service will be in May. Will send that out when I have more information.
Some of you might want to know about and perhaps attend the luncheon and presentation by Ray McGovern, former CIA analyst under seven presidents, and co-founder of Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity. His specialty is Russia and still keeps up with that. That will be on May 3 at the Belo. Tickets are 40.00. If you are interested, let me know and I will forward more information to you.
But, also know that he will be on Public Radio, 90.1 the day before, May 2 on Krys Boyd’s show, THINK. Don’t know whether it will be the noon hour or 1:00 pm.
