"Interfaith Dialogue: Just a Beginning"

Interfaith Dialogue is cooperative, constructive, and positive interaction among people of different religious beliefs and traditions. It arises from a sincere desire to understand and appreciate other faiths. Its ultimate goal is to build a society where people from different backgrounds live in equal dignity and mutual loyalty. In preparation for the November 10 and 11 visit by the world-renowned Interfaith Amigos (Rabbi Ted Falcon, Pastor Don Mackenzie, and Imam Jamal Rahman), the Interfaith Dialogue Planning Group has sponsored an Institute for Learning course on the three Abrahamic faiths and discussion groups for Marietta College students, two adult RE courses on Islam, and displays in area libraries. FUUSM members and friends, including George and Gwen Banziger, MJ Ebenhack, and Martha McGovern, have been extensively involved in planning this initiative and see that our efforts are in alignment with this year's theme question of "How do we create a world of our values?" We have learned much and our activities have sparked many friendships, conversations, and inquiries, but we know that the dialogue has just begun and the follow-through will require sustained commitment. Come join us in our efforts. • Daylight Saving Time Ends - Set your clocks back one hour. • Social Justice Forum: "Sexuality and Social Justice" 1:00 - 3:00 p.m. in the Social Hall.
