Upcoming Events
 
Greetings!

With so many challenges around the world relating to some religious issue or faith tradition, such as the violence in Libya and Egypt or the Wisconsin shootings at a Sikh Worship Service, we hope you'll bring your friends and join us for something positive, educational, non-political, and fun, Experience Interfaith. Our theme this year is "Peace in ACTION".  See the details below.

 

With a passion for UNITY,

Program:
  • Exp InterFaith 2010 Langar - Starts with a Sikh Langar, which is a vegetarian meal that is prepared by several wonderful Indian Restaurants (we'll share who soon...). One of the Sikh members shared these words, "in appreciation of a heartfelt and unsolicited support from the Arizona Interfaith Movement and Community at times of need, including the recent Wisconsin tragedy, the Sikh Community graciously prepares and serves the Langar, the Free Community Kitchen, in keeping with their religious tradition." The Langar initially challenged the "cast system" in India, with everyone lined up on the floor, intending to show that all people, regardless of their status, race or gender, are all part of a global family - no one is "higher" than the other.  (Chairs available if needed.)
  • Exp Int Discussion time Small Group Discussions - Next we'll grab chairs and form small circles that will include people of different faith traditions. Then, we have moderated small group discussions, and have a great time learning together.  We will collectively arrive at a "Call to Action" to then be shared with the greater community.
Tickets - we encourage advance purchase of tickets to help for swift check-in, and to ensure your place at the event.  We expect a sell out this year!  Plus, you'll have more time to enjoy the Faith Fair & Reception!   CLICK HERE to purchase tickets on our website or mail in a check.
