Divisions within our society are getting worse. As members of the faith community, we all believe that the solutions to these divisions and rising tensions lie in our faith traditions. It has become more urgent now for us to reach into our traditions to find those solutions and to share them with our loved ones and those around us. As part of the solution, the Islamic Society of Twin Ports (ICTP) invites you and your faith community and leadership to participate in the Duluth Interfaith Dialogues that will address these problems head-on in collaborative, friendly and enlightening discussions over Zoom. Each month, 3-4 panelists who represent their faith communities will offer what their traditions say about the problems we’re facing, and we invite the public to ask questions and interact with our panelists. The discussions will be recorded and shared with the public on an accessible website. Based on a survey conducted among the members of several faith communities, selected topics were chosen each month and the proposed schedule for the dialogues are shown below. We invite you to send a representative of your church to be a panelist for any of the topics below. Please email email@example.com if your faith organization is interested in participating in the Duluth Interfaith Dialogues and mention which topic you would like to become a panelist. Each panelist is given 15 minutes to share their traditions related to the topic followed by Q&A from the audience. All sessions will be held on Zoom using this llink (https://us06web.zoom.us/j/93758294079?pwd=ODRPQ3NxaFlRU1ltWkpIb1ZFQWlvQT09)
