As Occupy Wall Street held 24-hour holiday events, including a candlelight protest outside the New York Stock Exchange, the OWS Interfaith group Occupy Faith continued to negotiate with Trinity Church for a space of their own, arguing for the place of faith in "the margins, the wilderness, the cold and dark" where too often "we are taught to close our doors."

"We ask ourselves, 'Do our traditions deal with, confront, the real world, real life vectors of class and money and race and power? Are we doing that, and if we're not, then what are we?'"

This is the world we live in. This is the world we cover.

Because of people like you, another world is possible. There are many battles to be won, but we will battle them together—all of us. Common Dreams is not your normal news site. We don't survive on clicks. We don't want advertising dollars. We want the world to be a better place. But we can't do it alone. It doesn't work that way. We need you. If you can help today—because every gift of every size matters—please do. Without Your Support We Simply Won't Exist.
