“Healing from Tragedy and Resisting a Bigoted Backlash”
Community Church of Boston is located in Copley Square, not far from the finish line of the Boston Marathon where fatal bombings took place on 4/15. Events such as these challenge our communities in several ways as we deal with trauma from the bombings themselves, the ensuing police and military response, and the predictable xenophobic and Islamophobic backlash. Join us for a guided community discussion as we sort through feelings and ideas about how we might best respond.

On March 6, 2013 the Massachusetts Department of Corrections posted an announcement that all prisoner’s friends and family would be subjected to search by drug-detecting dogs upon visits. The CCB Prison Membership Committee prepared an open statement to Gov. Deval Patrick condemning this practice, which the CCB Board & Congregation unanimously endorsed.
