EventsA Pinch of Salt: Everyone Belongs in the Kitchen

Saturday, September 23, 2017 EDT @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

Do you ever feel like you don’t quite fit in? Too nerdy for activism, too queer for church, or too spiritual for academia? Join a batch of other misfits who are cooking up a storm in God’s kitchen where there’s space for all of us – critical thinkers, inspired makers, passionate dreamers, grumpy prophets and more!

Tickets cost $25. This includes ferry ride to the island (and back!) and our lunch. Financial support is available to anyone for whom cost is a barrier – please contact us. We will meet at 9am at the Jack Layton Ferry Terminal to cross to Toronto Island, beginning our program at 10am.

We will be at St Andrews-by-the-Lake, an Anglican church. It is wheelchair accessible. The Student Christian Movement is an ecumenical, anti-racist, queer-affirming, and feminist organization.

Morning: Stations of the cook – we’ll be taking turns on various hands-on activities, engaging in great conversation, praying, creating and crafting and incidentally producing our lunch. Dr. Bob Phillips, Mi’kmaq elder and educator, will be joining us.

Afternoon: Participate in workshops by Teddy Syrette and by Christian Peacemaker Teams as we explore issues of violence and injustice, and how we can respond using active nonviolence. Explore deeper issues of oppression and marginalization. How do these ‘powers that be’ function to preserve unjust social orders and oppressive economic systems? And what will we do about it?
