The next questions that comes to mind is, "circus, really?" and "how do you fit a circus into a church space?
There is a simple answer. The event is not a full circus, but a series of trapeze and other aerial acts performed by the local non-profit group, Albuquerque Aerialist Collective. The performance will benefit the New Mexico Conference of Churches, La Mesa Arts Academy, New Mexico Interfaith Power and Light, and the New Mexico Faith Coalition for Immigrant Justice, and of course, also the Albuquerque Aerialist Collective.
Tickets are $40 and can be purchased on the NMCC site or at the door (you can write a check for any of these organizations). The cost of the ticket includes dinner and a reception. Each of the organizations will make a presentation. This is a great way to observe not only the Week of Christian Unity in Albuquerque, but also interfaith unity and collaboration between religious and secular organizations.
