It's a story of being present and bearing deep witness, about knowing that we can't always change the world, about what it takes to look empathetically into the experience of another and to show up in acts of love and solidarity. It's about knowing that when we sit with each other in pain, we can strengthen and be strengthened, we can transform and be transformed–and we can learn how to live out our awareness that each person is created in God's image. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=357767 Symphony Space Symphony Space
