10/20 Bohm Dialogue — Supernatural

Must be the season of the witch … – Donovan For October our topic-word is “Supernatural”. Why this topic? Well, October is the month and season for it if any month is. And there seems to be a huge fascination at this time with the supernatural in the wider culture, with lots of TV shows, movies and plays, fiction and nonfiction centered on it. At the same time, mainstream culture derides it as “superstition” and in science it is practically “taboo” – any research smacking the least bit of...

Indigenous People’s Day – Let us take this Sunday to understand how the short- comings of our ancestors displaced the people who inhabited Massachusetts before immigrants arrived. Columbus wasn’t a good guy, in his wake befell trauma, tragedy and destruction. The indigenous people who lived here were decimated by disease, murder and warfare. How do we move forward from our history based on acquisition and greed? Is there a way to heal the divide that still exists in our relationships with our native brothers, sisters and two-spirit? Join Rev....
