What's Happening


January 8, 2020, Adrian, Michigan – Weber Retreat and Conference Center brings back its popular Dine and Discuss, but in a virtual format. Join others in reading The Words of My Father: Love and Pain in Palestine, the compelling story Yousef Bashir’s experience as a young boy growing up in the Gaza Strip – and the sudden challenges of finding his home occupied by soldiers.

Tune in from 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. EST Wednesday, February 24, 2021, to view a group discussion and a presentation by Linda Tomala, a member of the Detroit hub of the Meta Peace Team. She practiced non-violence and bystander intervention during several trips to the Middle East, including at the Israeli-Palestinian border.
