What Would Gandhi Do?” with Dave Lewit

With Americans and the world facing climate or nuclear doom, and with irresponsible corporations in charge, can we the people get it together to save us all?  Or are we looking for a new savior to point the way?  Because Gandhi’s experience was close to our times, and because he helped liberate 400 million people (with questionable results), can his non-violent, spiritual-political approach work in the USA?  Let’s explore this, considering the difficult role of empathy in positive power.

 

Dave Lewit is a social psychologist and democracy activist with university teaching and research background. Known to some CCB members as editor of BCA Dispatch (see www.newenglandalliance.com), he has organized forums, roundtables, and symposiums for regional autonomy and for broader system transformation. Asked his religion, he has replied “Gandhian”.

Music by Coleen Kattau

Join us for lunch after the program.


A recent article published in the New Yorker caught the attention of one of our members: “Break-In at Y-12: How a handful of pacifists and nuns exposed the vulnerability of America’s nuclear-weapons sites.” We’d like to share it with you below, just click on the image to read it.

The congregation of the Community Church of Boston strives to be a wise steward of both financial and natural resources. We are working together with HEET (Home Energy Efficiency Team) to become more energy efficient, which will keep the congregation more comfortable, lower our energy bills and improve the energy efficiency of our building.
