Evenings of Documentary Theatre, Storytelling and Dialogue. Members of 
Unconditional Theatre visited Crawford, TX, where we interviewed people on all sides 
of last summer's anti-war protests. We found some very surprising activists, 
and many of them are gathered in Crawford for the anniversary right now! So if 
you can't travel all the way out there, come hear their stories at one of our 
upcoming events. Part play-reading & part discussion, these events are a 
wonderful way to make contact with the current voices of change -- including your 
own.

Imagine a nation where religious fervor runs hot, and faith rhetoric runs 
hotter. Where belief has replaced reason, and where Liberty and Justice play a 
broken second fiddle to an all powerful, omniscient and omnipresent 
military-industrial God complex. That's the nation Reverend C.B. De Love wants. And that's 
also the nation where shy civics teacher Angela Franklin finds herself. But 
in her struggle to stop the coming Theocracy will Angela go too far? In her 
zeal to destroy the opiate of the masses, will she make a religion out of her 
anti-religion, and join the ranks of the Gangsters for God? Or will she see the 
folly of blind faith in anything - even the Constitution - and return to 
Reason?

These “sacred circles” offer an opportunity to rest in the Heart and

singing and other sound practices, along with writing, will be the vehicles for 
embodying our personal and collective exploration.  When we rest in our Essence, 
spontaneous creative expression naturally arises effortlessly. No prior art

Culture of Peace and Non-Violence for the Children of the World, 2001 to 2010. 
Established by a United Nations resolution in 1981, the International Day of 
Peace was first celebrated September 1982.   

In Santa Cruz, California, 500 beacons will light up the night for peace on 
September 21 -- just one of many thousands of Peace Day events taking place all 
around the world.    www.internationaldayofpeace.org
