An Occupy Faith National Gathering is being held in Berkeley, hosted by the Interfaith Tent at Oakland to bring together faith leaders supporting the Occupy Wall Street movement. The gathering is billed as a chance to be with other faith leaders, to link people, support each other, share ideas, and create a few ways people of faith might help, in their own way, to make a national impact on the movement, including planning something they can do as a coordinated effort. The event runs from Tuesday to Thursday, March 20 – March 22 at the Ecumenical Center of the Graduate Theological Union, 2401 Le Conte Ave. in Berkeley. Each faith occupation is invited to send up to three delegates. Anyone can attend, but delegations are limited to three representatives, in order to provide financial support for travel and housing in people’s homes. On the first evening, participants will hold a public panel for occupiers from all over the Bay Area. The second evening, Wednesday, they will hold an interfaith service at Occupy Oakland. For information, contact Sandy Gess at firstname.lastname@example.org or Rita Brock at 510-459-5123.
