A Third Place Center on TV News Again

Our "A Third Place" Center received more television coverage this weekend, on Tulsa Channel 2 news, as we did our Turley Talks kick-off event partnering with OU. I haven't been able to find any of the television coverage posted on the web at the news station in order for you to link to, but you can read the web story at http://www.kjrh.com/news/local/story.aspx?content_id=2C7F95BC-8A08-4E0F-B2DB-1061F3F065D4&gsa=true. The video included shots outside and some inside our space as the community forum were being held, and they also did some shots of places around the community. They were here early in the day and their coverage focused more on the needs of the area, while the program itself is focusing on the assets we have, uncovering and unleashing them, and building community from the inside out and the bottom up rather than waiting for "fixes" to come from anywhere or anyone else. For a link to a story on us by Channel 6 and our new medical clinic we brought to our area, go down to the blogpost for Feb. 15 at the bottom of the page.
For more on the Turley Talks program, see the Easter post below, or go to http://www.turleyok.blogspot.com/. It is further proof of what a handful of UU Christians can do when we get outside the boundaries of what we think of as "church". End
