REMINDER - This Sunday (6/14): "CCB Soapbox Sunday" - Annual Meeting 
Postponed until September 13th
*CCB Sunday: June 14  11 AM*

*Annual Meeting Postponed until September 13th.*

*“Soapbox Sunday”*

*Dear CCB Friends*,

Our sincerest hope is that each one of you is safe, secure, with faith 
in your heart for a better world, even in the midst of such planetary 
chaos, leadership vacuum, and righteous struggle in the streets.

By decision of the board, our *Annual Meeting has been postponed until 
September 13*. Our hope is that things will be such that we can have a 
physical meeting then, with a Zoom component for those who cannot be 
present in Copley Square.

We have reached the end of our 2019-2020 season.  It was to be our grand 
One Hundredth Anniversary Celebration, filled with festive commemorative 
and celebratory events. Somehow, all of that got postponed, and the 
planning for more of the same in the fall has been hampered by all of 
the uncertainty. Please know that this is a postponement, not a 
cancellation. We all need to learn about the pause button: the sweet 
music we were listening to, before the urgent distraction, will be 
waiting for us when we get back to it, sweet as when we first played it. 
I think we should have a pause every year: a PPP (Pandemic Preparedness 
Procedure), where the nations come together to understand how to be 
ready to handle what nature increasingly throws at us: plagues, floods, 
fires, earthquakes, tsunamis...there we will learn how to become truly 
resilient in a planetary way. Maybe it should also be another kind of 
PPP (Planetary Peace Protocol), where the nations resolve to, once a 
year, come together to dream and scheme for the elimination of the 
weapons of war that we build against each other. What do you think: A 
PPP (planetary pause period) for one week out of the year? Can we think 
these thoughts and act on them?

First though, there is a PPP (Pathetic Pustulent President) to get rid 
of. Oops, sorry, we are not supposed to engage in PPP( petty partisan 

Instead of the annual meeting, will you join us this Sunday, June 14, at 
11 AM online, for a "Soapbox Sunday"? During this pause,  I have tried 
to be in touch with as many of you as I could, and this I know: It has 
been really difficult, for every one of us. Let's check in on Sunday, 
and have a round table, open mic, sacred circle. We can hear from each 
of you, for as long as it needs to take. We might get an update on some 
exciting church news, and some not so exciting financial 
prognostications. I might get us to sing a song or 3. Will you join us 
by video or by phone? Here is the link:
