Interfaith Dinner Dialogue on May 7 – “Refugees, Asylum Seekers & Immigrants”

F.I.R.E. (Fostering Interfaith Relationships on the Eastside) invites you to the ninth in a series of Dinner Dialogues aimed at fostering interfaith relationships, on Sunday, May 7, 5PM to 8PM, hosted by Holy Spirit Lutheran Church, 10021 NE 124th Street in Kirkland (at the corner of 100th Avenue NE).

This Dialogue will be on the topic “Refugees, Asylum Seekers & Immigrants”. We will continue the discussion started at the January 29 Dinner Dialogue, with a facilitated discussion focused on specific things we can do as individuals and as a community to help refugees, asylum seekers, and immigrants feel more welcomed in our community and have their needs met. We will hear some first-hand stories from individuals who have experienced these challenges and from those who serve immigrants and refugees. And, as always, we’ll have stimulating interfaith discussions among all participants.

This is a potluck dinner, so please bring your favorite dish to share, labeled showing the ingredients to help people with food allergies and preferences make choices.

Everyone is invited to come and enjoy a fun evening of interfaith dialogue! You don’t need to have attended the January dinner, and you don’t need to be affiliated with any faith or faith community to participate. Please email and let us know how many will be coming, so we can be sure to set up enough tables and chairs.

If you would like to invite others to the Dinner Dialogue, you can download and print a full-color flyer, or download and print a two-per-page bulletin insert.
