Chalice Children Parent News for the week of March 5, 2017
Children’s Chapel this Sunday, March 12th, we are learning about our fifth source: Humanist teachings which counsel us to heed the guidance of reason and the results of science, and warn us against idolatries of the mind and spirit; or, in children’s language: the use of reason and the discoveries of science.
This Sunday, rain or shine, we will be doing a trash walk around OBIC! Please make sure your children grades K-5 are dressed appropriately for the weather! It’s forecast to be cold, so gloves and hats would be a good idea. Start in the Sanctuary, same as normal; children move downstairs after the Time for All Ages.
Parents are invited to join us! See you on Sunday!
Daylight Savings starts this weekend! Remember to set your clocks ahead so you aren’t late for church!
Movie Nights for Parents and Adolescents!
Please join us for two movie nights with your adolescents from fourth and fifth grade through high school.
April 23 – Miss Representation:
Miss Representation exposes how mainstream media and culture contribute to the under-representation of Miss Representationwomen in positions of power and influence in America.
The film draws back a curtain to reveal a glaring reality we live with every day but fail to see – how the media’s limited and often disparaging portrayals of women and girls makes it difficult for women to feel powerful and achieve leadership positions.
In a society where media is the most persuasive force shaping cultural norms, the collective message we receive is that a woman’s value and power lie in her youth, beauty, and sexuality, and not in her capacity as a leader. While women have made great strides in leadership over the past few decades, the United States is still 33rd out of the 49 highest income countries when it comes to women in the national legislature. And it’s not better outside of government. Women make up only 4.6% of S&P 500 CEOs and 17% of directors, executive producers, writers, cinematographers, and editors working on the top 250 domestic grossing films.
Stories from teenage girls and provocative interviews with politicians, journalists, entertainers, activists, and academics, like Katie Couric, Rosario Dawson, Gloria Steinem, Margaret Cho, Condoleezza Rice, Rachel Maddow, and Nancy Pelosi, build momentum as Miss Representation accumulates startling facts and statistics that will leave the audience shaken, but armed with a new perspective.
