Liminal Space: Celebrating the In-Between

There is a sacred space between the no-longer and the not-yet.
 A place between the concept and the reality, where nothing is clear and anything is possible.
We will explore that space together.

Rescuing Jerry

On October 1, 1851 the citizens of Syracuse answered the call to turn out in force and physically remove William “Jerry” Henry from the custody of Federal Marshalls who had detained him under the Fugitive Slave Law.  The Jerry Rescue was an act of resistance to an unjust law.  What, in the 21st Century, do we see as calling us to radically defy injustice?

Quilts as Both Love & Resistance

Many of us have quilts that warm us and give us the love of their makers. Some of us also have made or seen quilts that mark resistance to various kinds of oppression. Syracusan Ellen Blalock is a master quilter who will be sharing her work with us. Her quilts tell both of her love of family as well as the violences inflicted on them as Blacks in the U.S. You are invited to join in making your own quilt square after the service with a wide range of fabric scraps and glue.
