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?'"

FRIENDS: Help Us Fight

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
