Meeting Notes for People for Peace, Justice, and Healing

People for Peace, Justice and Healing met Saturday, June 18, 2005, at Associated Ministries. Present for check-in were Mark, Sallie, Sheila and Kyle, Colleen, Karen and Vivi. Great discussion: rat control, religion, homelessness, et al.

Program: Mark presented a program which included a colorful (and dazzling) reading of a translation of a Saint-Simonian vision from 1832 of a future city, and a Bruce Springsteen song -- MY CITY IN RUINS. Enjoyed by all.


Question for coming week: (Something to the effect of) Do Americans have healthy attitudes about sex? Referred to Mark for tweaking. Mark felt question on "bad taste" last week wasn't particularly successful.

Sallie reported that David Alger will discuss this subject in Director's Corner of next CHANNEL.
