Interfaith Clergy Forum
New in 2012-13 is a group designed for clergy, those leading congregations and/or doing professional clergy work. There are hundreds of such people in our county. Many get together with members of their own denominations. Many are also looking for opportunities to get together with those outside of their own tradition.
This group meets a couple of times a year from 7:30 – 9 am, at the location of one of the attendees.
Why have such forums? Many clergy want to know other clergy in town. Many want to discuss the challenges that come with leading a congregation. Many want to go deeper into issues of interest, usually theological or religious, but not always. And many are enriched personally and professionally by doing this in an interfaith setting.
Any clergy interested in finding out more about this forum, email firstname.lastname@example.org
ONE HUMAN FAMILY (consider this for your congregation)
The IRT is joining with The Interfaith Council for Peace and Justice in sponsoring a banner and outreach campaign to counter anti-Muslim and anti-refugee attitudes heard so frequently in the media today. The banners are 3 x 8 feet and read “One Human Family: We support refugees and our Muslim neighbors”. Banners cost $100 each. For more information, go to www.1humanfamily.org. Yard signs with similar wording are also available. Suggested donations – $5-10. Contact us or ICPJ for either or both items.
