Imam Jamal Rahman, Pastor Dave Brown, and Rabbi Ted Falcon, the Pacific Northwest Interfaith Amigos, will offer an afternoon workshop and an evening public talk focusing on the nature and the purpose of effective interfaith dialogue and sharing how their respective faith traditions support as well as hinder that dialogue. Reaching more deeply into those very traditions, they share how spirituality provides a ground for healing.
Afternoon workshop: “Creating an Effective Foundation for Interfaith Dialogue” — Parish Hall, 4 – 5:30 p.m.
The Pacific Northwest Interfaith Amigos guide participants in developing a foundation for truly effective communication and purposeful collaboration. In this workshop, participants are invited to experience how to move beyond polarization and stereotyping to more authentically meet the other.
Evening presentation: “Interfaith Dialogue for Challenging Times” — Sanctuary, 7 – 8:30 p.m.
The Pacific Northwest Interfaith Amigos share some of the promises as well as the problems related to developing an interfaith dialogue that can support collaborative action in our world. With warmth, humor, and wisdom, these three teachers guide an interfaith process that opens us to spiritual treasurers which support healing and wholeness.
Following each program, there will be a signing of the Interfaith Amigos’ newest book, Finding Peace Through Spiritual Practice.
