Consolation in Creation 

By Bob Bonnici

“Do you think anyone will come?”  That unsettling question was on the minds of all the organizers of an annual Interfaith Service Day for Youth that was set to occur two days following the horrific slaughter of 50 Muslim worshippers at two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, by a self-proclaimed white supremacist.  The Interfaith Service Day to be held at a local nature preserve for students in Cincinnati from three Catholic high schools and several Muslim, Jewish, and Lutheran youth groups was already months into the planning following the equally horrific slaughter of Jewish worshippers at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh.  Everyone was on edge as security was being heightened that weekend for mosques all over the country.  Read more..

Faith to Faith: An Interfaith Forum on Sexual Assault and Relationship Abuse

3-2010Faith+to+Faith+Poster+2.jpg

On Sunday March 31, The Changing Role of Women in our Faith Communities, a series of interfaith symposiums, presented Faith to Faith, an Interfaith Forum on Sexual Assault & Relationship Abuse. The forum featured both a panel and interactive break out sessions regarding how both individuals and faith communities can bring change through recognizing gender-based violence (including domestic violence, sexual assault, and stalking), speaking out against it, implementing preventative measures, and supporting survivors. The past year and a half since the revival of the #MeToo movement, it has become more and more apparent that Gender Based Violence affects people of all walks of life. This means that there are survivors and victims in our own faith communities too. While there are cases when these experiences are more public than others, we as members of the Cincinnati Interfaith Community have decided to be proactive in continuing the conversation of how our faith communities can better address sexual assault, domestic violence, and stalking in our midst - with an important focus on supporting survivors. As a result of the forum, Interfaith Cincy will be posting resources shared at this event for faith groups to be able to connect with and assist their community.
