Program: Recovering The Original Stories of Xmas
A presentation with artifacts, collective readings and discussion based on Biblical and extra-Biblical sources.
Sponsored by the Side with Love Committee, the program asks us to rethink the “first Christmas,” in the light of history, and in the stories themselves, with all their original, explosive cultural, political, and religious context.
