Your Neighbor’s Religion

Your Neighbor’s Religion

St. Paul Church and Interfaith Paths to Peace offer 4-part series on Louisville’s religions.

Your Neighbor’s Religion, a 4-part series co-hosted by St. Paul United Methodist Church (St. Paul Church) and Interfaith Paths to Peace meets second Sundays, 5:00-6:30pm fall 2017. These two organizations have teamed up to bring more awareness to some of the religions practiced in Louisville.

“The culture in Louisville is so vibrant, and I love the diversity of this town. But I also know how easy it is to close our eyes to what’s different, to stay in our own little bubble.” Angela Brooks, Director of Community Outreach and co-organizer of the series said. “Your Neighbor’s Religion invites all Louisville residents to become better acquainted with the colorful array of faiths and cultures happening right were we live. I hope that this series continues the conversation of  building a better, stronger, more supportive community in Louisville.”

The first session occurs on Sunday, August 13, 5:00-6:30pm. Rabbi Gaylia Rooks will speak about the Jewish Faith.

The second session occurs on Sunday, September 10, 5:00-6:30pm. Rita Butler will speak about the Baha’i Faith.

The fourth session occurs on Sunday, October 8, 5:00-6:30pm. Anne Walter and Geshe Kalsang Rapgyal will speak about the Buddhist Faith.

The third session occurs on Sunday, November 12, 5:00-6:30pm and features Haleh Karimi, Interfaith Paths to Peace Executive Director,  speaking about the Islamic Faith.

All sessions meet at St. Paul Church, 2000 Douglass Blvd, Louisville, Ky 40205. A question and answer section will follow each session.

Bringing peace and understanding to our community takes courage and effort. By allowing ourselves to open our minds and hearts, we take the first step in understanding and appreciating our neighbors. St. Paul Church and Interfaith Paths to Peace hope that this series will help many continue to engage in compassion and foster a compassionate Louisville.
