Our 'Stop Shopping' community has landed in a great urban gospel tradition of the storefront church. Every Sunday at 5:00 pm we gather in the empty branch bank on Ave C & East 3rd St in New York's East Village. The "nabe" is all the races, though the famous local culture is "Loisaida" -- the presence of Puerto Rican culture is strong. Our songs are about the Earth's crisis but belted out as gospel. We welcome people who come to the door, hearing the 30 voice Stop Shopping Choir. "We love the Earth!" "It's the Extinction but it's Evolution too and we're Alive now!" Some of the folks walk in and sit down and begin to clap their hands.
