The newly formed Interfaith Engagement Ministry has been blessed by the support of pastoral and lay leaders. We have already supported several well-attended events, and this Spring will host additional occasions for you to further grow your interfaith understanding. The ministry strives to identify and organize diverse, informative, and enjoyable opportunities for WCC members and the broader community to learn more about other faith traditions and participate in events with those of other religious beliefs. In so doing we hope that this strengthens each person’s own relationship with God. We hope you find something of interest, and invite your ideas for additional programming in the months ahead.
Roundtable: Turning Hate Into Love
Sunday, March 3
1:00-3:00 p.m., Mithun Hall
We live in an increasingly divisive and hate-filled country and world. Racism, religious fanaticism, intolerance of sexual orientation and many other deeply held prejudices have created an unprecedented need to find a way for us to accept others who are different from ourselves, and learn how to live together. This roundtable will explore this topic from Christian, Jewish and Muslim perspectives. Presentations will be followed by small group discussions during which refreshments will be provided.
Interfaith Meet and Greet
Sunday, April 14
10:00-10:45 a.m. and
11:45 a.m.-12:30 p.m., Piper Library
The Interfaith Engagement Ministry’s mission is to create opportunities for WCC members to grow their faith through prayer, learning, sharing, celebration and service with those of other faith traditions. Come learn more about the exciting and important work we are doing. We also want to hear your ideas and suggestions for how we can make our ministry more relevant (and fun!).
