The Tri-Faith Initiative is going “on the road” for workshops on interfaith work in Nebraska communities throughout the state. Panel members from Temple Israel, the American Institute of Islamic Studies and Culture and the new ecumenical Christian community on the Tri-Faith campus will discuss the plans for the campus at 132nd and Pacific in Omaha.
Clergy, lay leaders and religious educators will be gathering at the workshops to learn how they may be able to foster interfaith activities in their communities. The Tri-Faith leaders will share resources for education programs and lead discussions on how to build relationships with people of other faiths and how to build programs for joint action on community projects.
The upcoming workshops are:
In Mitchell, August 17, 10:00-2:00 at Holy Apostles Church
In Kearney, September 28, 10:00-2:00 at St. Luke’s Church
We had a great workshop in Lincoln in July, and additional workshops are in the planning stage for Norfolk and Omaha.
The workshops are co-sponsored by the Tri-Faith Initiative, the Episcopal Diocese of Nebraska and the ELCA Nebraska Synod with support from the Roanridge Trust.
