In our challenging and divided world of the past years, one of the great ways we have had to come together has been through the Greater Clifton Interfaith Community. Through worship services, lunches, etc., we are learning about each other and how to become the community our faiths inspire! We want to invite you to a Barbecue on the HUC-JIR campus on Wednesday, September 26 at 6:30pm.
This will be special because it is during Sukkot, the Biblical feast of Thanksgiving and we will all eat (weather permitting!) underneath our Sukkah, symbolic of the Feast of Booths. Read more…
The We Are Still In Declaration (for organizations, including faith communities) was begun in June 2017 as a promise to world leaders that Americans would not retreat from the global pact to reduce emissions and stem the causes of climate change. (over 200 faith groups have already signed!). Interfaith Power & Light's "We're Still In" statement for households (individuals) and faith communities, HERE.
The Catholic Climate Declaration (for Catholic faith communities or organizations), HERE.
Interfaith Cincy encourages faith groups to build bridges and relationships across our faith communities. There are many do's and dont's to hosting a speaker of another faith. In order to have a successful event, openness and good communication up front prior to the event is necessary. The Bridges of Faith Trialogue group has recommendations for leading a successful event. Please read more here.
