Eat and Meet THIS WEEKEND!

Update: The Eat and Meets were great successes! We shared some amazing stories through laughter and tears. And we were each reminded of how much we need to support one another. Many thanks to the Palacios, Bebbers, Armijos and Canfield/Thomas families for hosting!

Socializing at the Sunday Eat and Meet

Corned beef and cabbage: an Irish dish and a reminder that the Irish were discriminated against when they first immigrated and now they are an integral part of American culture. See St. Patrick's Day for example!

Stayed tuned for more Eat and Meets in the future!

Now that we have some of the background information and big picture perspective from our Lunch and Learn Forum, we want to share the stories of how immigration has affected members of our congregation. Several members have volunteered to host informal lunches/dinners in their homes where 8-10 people can hear the immigration story of one of our members. The gatherings will take place throughout the city THIS weekend (March 12, 13 and 14) It is going to be a great opportunity to meet new people and to hear the personal perspective on immigration. If you are interested in participating please email us at and indicate which gathering you plan to attend.

Friday at 6:30 pm at the home of the Palacios in Takoma Park, DC. Cohosted by the Bebbers.

Saturday at 5:00 pm at the home of the Armijos in Chinatown, DC.

Sunday at 5:00 pm at the home of the Thomas/Canfields on Capital Hill, DC
