Fostering Interfaith Relationships on the Eastside (FIRE) invites you to our 15th Interfaith Dialogue on Sunday, November 1, 6:30-8:00PM. This Dialogue will be conducted online using Zoom conferencing. For access to the Dialogue, please register at https://tinyurl.com/FIRENov2020.
The topic for this Dialogue is “Bridging the Divide — How people of faith can address partisan and ideological polarization and help our communities heal”. The event features a panel discussion and small group discussions including people from many world religions including Baha’i, Buddhism, Christianity, Islam, Judaism, Native Americans, Sikhism, Sufism, Unitarianism, Zoroastrianism, and others, and stimulating interfaith discussions among all participants.
Suggested topics for the discussions include “Loving each other even if we disagree”, “Respect for political differences”, “Civility in online and personal interactions”, “Being good examples and advocates to lead society at large to a better future”, and “Justice – racism, bias, privilege, gender, economic, etc.”.
Most previous FIRE Interfaith Dialogues have included a meal, but due to pandemic social distancing requirements this will be an online-only event. We ask all attendees to please register for the event through EventBrite at https://tinyurl.com/FIRENov2020. As the event approaches, all attendees will receive the link to the Zoom conference by email, along with instructions on how to connect online and by phone and how to navigate the conference.
