All About the Iran Arms Agreement

This Sunday, July 26 at 9:00 a.m. we will have a summer special edition of Adult Ed to hear from Greg Thielmann the details of the Iran Nuclear agreement. All are invited.

The United States, along with Britain, China, France, Germany, and Russia concluded a "Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action" with Iran on July 14 to prevent it from developing nuclear weapons in exchange for removing sanctions. The deal, which was reached following nearly two years of intensive negotiations between these seven countries, will be subject to an up or down vote of the U.S. Congress within 60 days. Dumbarton member Greg Thielmann, who has been closely following the negotiations as a Senior Fellow of the Arms Control Association, will explain the terms of the agreement and prospects for achieving its nonproliferation objectives.

Listen Up, Church! Reflecting on the Supreme Court Decision

It was supposed to be my day off, but instead I brought communion to the steps of the Supreme Court. On June 26, most expected that the court's decision on marriage equality would not come until the following Monday. But mere minutes after 10 a.m., Chett Pritchett texted me, “Put on your collar.” The court's decision was being released and the agreed upon plan was that Reconciling clergy who were available would show up and offer communion to the gathered crowd — whichever way the decision went.

At 11 a.m., Rev. Kate Payton and I were celebrating communion on the sidewalk, at the Supreme Court. For more than an hour, we offered the bread of life and the cup of grace to any and everyone who walked or wheeled past. Wesley Seminary students formed a pickup choir nearby.
