Spring: A Time for Growth and Renewal

      Spring has begun with welcome new growth of flowers, trees and lawns. At the InterFaith Leadership Council of Metropolitan Detroit, we are embarked on growth as well—with our new Interfaith Community Values project; planning for a return to in-person Religious Diversity Journeys; and developing new educational programs. In order to make this happen, we need your financial support. Please consider a gift, which will be matched up to $12,500 by our board. We are grateful to all of our past supporters.
