Last fall FUMCFW hosted “Pathway to Peace,” an interfaith symposium that brought together speakers and members of three major faith communities to talk about similarities, differences, and a way forward together. If the standing-room-only crowd gathered in Wesley Hall for this event was any indication, the potential for faith communities to influence peace in our global interfaith community is not only a dream, but a rapidly growing reality, organizers agree.
This past Sunday, we continued the conversation — this time about “Women in Faith” — with an informative and enlightening panel discussion of women’s issues from a faith perspective. “Thanks to those of you who attended the ‘Women In Faith’ symposium!” exclaimed Rev. Chuck Graff, who led this bold initiative. “The speakers, our moderator, the Beth-El Congregation’s hospitality, and crowd of close to 500 (a great response from our congregation) helped us create more unity, understanding, and dialogue.”
