Resistance Cinema Presents: Trumping Democracy, April 2, 7:00 p.m. in the Parish Hall, 12 West 11 Street. This explosive documentary focuses on Cambridge Analytica and others identified as misusing personal data for political gain. In the days before the 2016 U.S. presidential election, using a little-known Facebook feature — “dark posts” — they deployed highly manipulative and personalized messages that could be seen only by the user before disappearing. In the darkness of the web, democracy was trumped by data. Special Guest Speaker TBA. Don’t miss this compelling film and bring a friend!
This Sunday, following the 11 am service, Ascension will hold its annual meeting. All are welcome to attend, whether or not you’re a pledging member of the parish. For this special Sunday, we will have three very significant pieces. Starting at 10:45 am, the Prelude will be perhaps the greatest masterpiece of César Franck, his Choral in E Major. The Offertory Anthem will be the highly dramatic and inspiring “In the Year that King Uzziah Died” by David McK. Williams. And the Postlude will be Bach’s formidable “We all Believe in One God.”
