“Building Bridges Among People of Faith”

Last evening, our friends at the Lehigh Dialogue Center hosted the inaugural Interfaith Discussion Group. Participants in the group belong to various faith traditions including Judaism, Christianity, Islam and the Bahá’í Faith. Trinity, Bethlehem; Trinity, Easton; and Central Moravian Church in Bethlehem were represented. In addition to discussing the numerous commonalities among all People of Faith, there were also opportunities to discuss unique features of each faith tradition. The group plans to attend various important celebrations for each tradition to show support, and to affirm the beauty and significance of all religious observances. The group plans to meet regularly–and all are invited to attend. The next meeting will be on Thursday, August 30th at 7:00 p.m.  Here is the contact information for the Center:
