Taizé for July: For healing and renewal

Description: Taizé for July: For healing and renewal · July 1, 7-8 p.m. · In-person and live streamed Precious Blood Renewal Center will resume in-person programming on July 1 with an ecumenical service in the Taizé style, using music, chants and scripture for a meditative prayer experience. All are welcome to join us for our first in-person prayer service in 15 months. The theme of the evening: Prayers for Healing and Renewal. Register Is Required. Registration will also include details about the live stream. What is Taizé? Taizé Prayer comes from an ecumenical, monastic community in France and has spread to numerous spots around the world. The prayer service uses simple chant melodies followed by quieting moments of silence that fosters a meditative atmosphere. From the depths of the human condition a secret aspiration rises up. Today many are thirsting for the essential reality: an inner life, signs of the Invisible. Nothing is more conducive to communion with the living God than meditative common prayer. When the mystery of God becomes tangible through the simple beauty of symbols, when it is not smothered by too many words, then a common prayer awakens us to heaven’s joy on earth.

Virtual Cinema a Go-Go!

Get more info about this event »


Talent scout hears hipster terrorist gang leader singing along with jukebox and offers him a shot at stardom but the would-be star's pals aren't happy with his shot at fame and get him mixed up in murder! That's on KPR's next Virtual Cinema a Go Go, when we'll be screening The Beatniks (1960), a totally flipsville beatnik teen tale directed by Paul Frees (the voice of Boris Badenov on TV's Rocky and Bullwinkle).

 

 

Unfortunately, despite the title there are NO actual beatniks in the title.  The movie's original title was Sideburns and Sympathy but apparently someone was under the impression that "beatnik" means something along the lines of "delinquent" or "hoodlum". 

Eddie Crane (Tony Travis) and his gang of punks are perfectly happy, robbing mom-and-pop stores and boozing it up. Then one day a leathery talent agent overhears Eddie singing along with the jukebox and decides he just might be the next Fabian(!). As Eddie is whisked away to the bright lights, TV shows and romance, his delinquent pals are jealous, especially Mooney (Peter Breck) who goes absolutely nuts in one of the great examples of overacting in cinema history.  Mooney's not about to let Eddie leave him behind, so he murders a bartender and frames Eddie for the crime.  Good times.

Also on the show, a great short film from Lawrence's own Centron Studios - What About Juvenile Delinquency? (1955), shot right here in Lawrence, KS!  It's all about what happens when a troubled teen drops out of a gang after they mug his father for his pencil. That must be some pencil.

Virtual Cinema a Go Go is free!  All you need to do is provide your name and email address in this web form, and you'll receive the exclusive log-in information for the event.

Premier Integrative Health, Five Mile Farms, Compost Collective, After the Harvest and Brookeside Farmer’s Market are all awesome organizations in KC that are extremely passionate about reducing food waste, supporting their community, protecting the environment, and finding new solutions for old problems… or rather, old solutions for new problems. Learn more about each of these organizations below! Our goal is to help Kansas Citians connect with local regenerative agriculture farms. These farmers are on a mission to provide high-quality produce and animal products, preserve our native prairies and replenish the soil of our planet. Premier Integrative Health Premier Integrative Health is a unique medical practice that uses Integrative and Functional medicine to get to the root cause of our patient's concerns. We focus on the prevention and reversal of disease as opposed to managing symptoms. Our team of doctors, health coaches and dietitians address all aspects of health including nutrition, movement and emotional wellbeing. We create a partnership with our patients to help them achieve their health goals and live the best life they can. Five Mile Farms Five Mile Farms is a local farm in La Cygne, KS that practices regenerative agriculture. Regenerative Agriculture not only produces extremely high-quality meats but is also the prescription to replenish our soil and save our planet. Their farming practices work with the carbon cycles of nature to rebuild the ecosystems that ultimately support their family and broader communities. Five Mile Farms is driven to rebuild the health of Kansas soil and leave it in better shape for future generations. Compost Collective KC This awesome organization is composed of a small group of caring citizens who want to make composting easy for you and keep food out of landfills. They’ve created a curbside compost pick-up service in the KC area to help reduce food waste & replenish the soils of our community. They are in partnership with Missouri Organic and local farms; after picking up food scraps from your home, they deliver it to these local farms where it is transformed into nutrient-dense compost that will be used to grow MORE nutritious food… and the cycle begins again! After The Harvest This incredible organization works to reduce waste by rescuing produce (tossed because of minor imperfections) and distributing it to those who need it most. This way it ends up on hungry families’ tables, instead of in a landfill or rotting in the field. Thanks to thousands of volunteers, growers and financial donors, After the Harvest, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, brings apples, berries, squash, tomatoes, lettuce, carrots, potatoes, peaches and many other kinds of healthy fruits and vegetables, completely free of charge, to agencies feeding our hungry neighbors in the KC community. Brookside Farmers’ Market The Brookside Farmers’ Market isn’t just any farmers’ market, it is a community. The market serves as a bridge between Kansas Citians and their local food source. All of BFM’s vendors are the actual farmers and makers. You will find no middle man at this market! Those who grow, raise or make every product are the ones who sell it to you directly. All products found at this market are sourced within 100 miles of Kansas City. Most importantly, the Brookside Farmers’ Market vendors are committed to practices that steward our dirt, water, and natural resources. Brookside Farmers’ Market takes place every Saturday morning at HJ's Youth and Community Center from 8:00 am- 1:00 pm. What is Regenerative Agriculture? Regenerative Agriculture describes farming and grazing practices that, among other benefits, reverse climate change by rebuilding soil organic matter and restoring degraded soil biodiversity –- resulting in a delicious and ultra nutritious protein source! Why should you choose to support local farms that practice regenerative agriculture? Not only do modern industrial farming practices limit the nutritional value of our food, but they also diminish the microbial diversity, available nutrients, and the quantity of the soil itself. However, there is hope! A number of farming practices that sustain our bodies, the earth, and other creatures that inhabit it are being studied and undertaken all over the world. Regenerative Agriculture can regenerate the health of the soil and the foods that grow within and upon it. Holistic land management practices leverage the natural power of the sun, plants, microorganisms, and large herbivores to create a sustainable, resilient cycle that is good for the planet and the human population. Opting for locally raised & produced food ensures that it stays packed with its intended and initial nutrients (and flavor!). Buying local helps strengthen communities because when you buy directly from the farmer, you are building a relationship while also supporting local farmers who provide for you as much as they provide for their own families.
