Healthy Body, Healthy Soul
June 3rd at 5pm
David O'Brien, the Director of The Green Light, will be sharing the story about how he transformed his health through nutrition and how today he lives in a pain free body.  David says, “I have never seen a situation where someone embraces this way of living and hasn’t benefitted greatly by making small changes that make a big impact on one’s health and well being.”  David has developed the Green Light Cleanse over the last 9 years and has experienced the changes it has made in his life as well as the changes he has seen in working with thousands of other people who have benefited enormously from the cleanse.  David will explain why this works. The event will be held at 50 Church St., Sunday June 3rd at 5pm.
Agape Dinner Church
Sunday, June 10th at 5pm
Intercultural Center (ICC), Brandeis University
Racial Justice Training 
Wednesday, June 13th from 7pm-9pm
Intercultural Center (ICC), Brandeis University
The Bible says in Genesis 1:27 that "God created humankind in God's own image, in the image of God, created them male and female." Later in Genesis 1:31 the Bible says, "God saw all that was created, and it was very good." When we combine these two essential passages from Genesis, there is no basis for racism. Racial justice is a moral problem - it is a spiritual problem.  Agape Spiritual Community's vision is to be a Multicultural, Multiracial community that makes God's love and justice real in the world.  Come and join in this 2-hour introductory training prior to a more extensive fall racial justice training.  All are welcome to attend.
