The religious leaders of the Jewish & Christian communities of Holliston, Massachusetts, and the Islamic Center of Boston, the Sikh Gurdwara of Millis, the Ramakrishna Vedanta Society of Boston (Hindu), other Islamic representatives, and the Baha'i community together provide opportunities for multifaith and nonreligious neighbors to come together. In doing so, we honor the presence of God through our richness and diversity and help create communities of solidarity.

Mindful Walk Along the Carol Getchell Nature Trail
On Earth Day weekend, we will gather for a mindful walk along the Carol Getchell Nature Trail led by Neela de Zoysa and Joe Hudock. We will practice gratitude toward the gently flowing river and the renewal of life with the arrival of Spring. Learn to recognize invasive plants, rally to remove some and pick up trash to restore the trail. This event will coincide with Keep Framingham Beautiful Earth Day campaign. Check out the trail map.

Interfaith Refugee Committee
The Metrowest Interfaith Dialogue Project created the Interfaith Refugee Committee, serving incoming Ukrainian war refugees in the Framingham area. Our first Ukrainian family arrives on May 8, and we are finalizing their new home with us.

This conversation will dive into the People's Supper and what they have learned over the years about what works, what doesn't, and what joys await people who dare to meet someone they don't know or disagree with for an intentional conversation and meal.

In a world that seems to be dividing at alarming rates, we need more opportunities to come together across cultural, religious, and political differences. Having conversations while sharing a meal is a fundamentally human way to connect. 

Thankfully, many of our religious traditions have spaces built into the regular rhythms of life to make these opportunities possible. Unfortunately, our culture has deemed certain topics taboo and, worse, has deemed certain people unwelcome. Luckily many people work against this dynamic and intentionally set the table for conversations across lines of difference to write new stories about our communities. Check out dialogue Guides Here
