Treasures of Uptown Holds "Spiritual Beans" Interfaith Dialogue Group On Saturday

Please join Treasures of Uptown for their informal, “Spiritual Beans” discussion on Saturday, February 18th at 3:30pm at Everybody's Coffee. We will be talking about the role that interfaith dialogue can play in minimizing the fear and anger that divides so many. Participants will be invited to share prayers, reflections, and ideas for bringing about healing and growth in our communities.

This event is free and open to all, including those who may not consider themselves to be religious. Treasures of Uptown is an interfaith action coalition that aims to bring together people with diverse beliefs and backgrounds.

The Facebook Event page is here.
“Interfaith dialogue is not a panacea for curing injustice and violent conflict. Dialogue alone cannot transform exclusionary cultures or institutions. Interfaith dialogue must be appreciated as a tool for peace- and justice-making, to be used alongside other tools in the activist’s or diplomat’s toolbox, such as mediation, community mobilization or non-violent strategic action. When used in this way, it can strengthen these sorts of initiatives.” -Susan Hayward, "Engaging across divides: interfaith dialogue for peace and justice"
