A discussion with the bestselling author on her bold and imaginative collection of essays by celebrated international writers that tell the stories of the people on the ground in Palestine, as a rich accompaniment to Palestine: Unlimited, the photograph exhibit opening on this same date that tells their story visually.

Ayelet Waldman is the author of A Really Good Day: How Microdosing Made a Mega Difference in My Mood, My Marriage and My Life, the novels Love and Treasure, Red Hook Road, Love and Other Impossible Pursuits, and Daughter’s Keeper; as well as the essay collection Bad Mother: A Chronicle of Maternal Crimes, Minor Calamities, and Occasional Moments of Grace. She is also the editor of Inside This Place, Not of It: Narratives from Women’s Prisons, and the forthcoming Kingdom of Olives and Ash: Writers Confront the Occupation. Waldman lives in Berkeley, California, with her husband Michael Chabon and their four children.

The Forum is a serious of stimulating conversations about faith, ethics and culture in relation to important issues of our day. Hosted by Grace Cathedral dean Malcolm Clemens Young, guests range from artists, inventors and philosophers to pop culturists and elected officials – with the goal of presenting civil, sophisticated and compassionate discourse that engages hearts and minds to think in new ways about the world.

Community Kitchen at Annunciation Greek Orthodox Cathedral

The Community Kitchen, which began under the name Soup Kitchen, operates the third Tuesday of every month. The volunteer work involves food prep, cooking, hall setup, serving the meal and---so important!—cleanup. We also have a food pantry, so a few awesome volunteers come early to bag up canned/non-perishable goods for our guests to take with them. Some volunteers arrive earlier, but the typical timeframe is 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. Won’t you consider volunteering once in a while? All you have to do is show up. By the way, there’s no age limit. We have teenagers volunteering and we have people “forever young” volunteering. Just look at the collage at the beginning of this Herald. Tots and teens. Seniors and all. Everyone turned out to make our Christmas Community Kitchen a true family event. How wonderful it would be for every month’s Community Kitchen to be like this. We prayed and we sang. We ate and we connected. Guests and hosts alike. We thought, what if the entire world took notice and tried a little bit of outreach: the world would become a better place. How about it. It would be truly wonderful to expand our volunteer base, so we can do more. Please communicate your willingness to Father Stephen, fatherstephen@annunciation.org. He will put you in touch to those who’ve taken the lead and are coordinating this important ministry. Thank you.
