The Role of Dialogue In Crossing Cultural Boundaries

Discussion Leader

Open Table - figures identified with different faith traditions reach to each other across a table

  • Allison Jacobs – Co-Chair, ADORE Group (A Dialogue on Race and Ethnicity), First Unitarian Church of Honolulu

Panelists

  • Paula Cole Jones – Founder and President, ADORE (via Skype)
  • Rev. John Martin
  • Rev. Dr. John Heidel – former President, TIAH
  • Sister Dr. Joan Chatfield – Exec. Dir., Institute for Religion and Social Change

When we come together in a safe environment, everyone has an important story to tell about race and ethnicity. When we share personal stories about how race has shaped our life experiences, it is clear that we tap into something deep within our communities.

Sharing stories brings us closer together and brings new dimensions of our lives into our communities of faith and peace. ADORE (A Dialogue on Race and Ethnicity) facilitates just such community dialogue. You don’t want to miss this Open Table experience!

Refreshments by Chinatown’s Local Joe and the First Unitarian Church of Honolulu.

There will also be an Action Table for sharing information and handouts.

Interfaith Open Table meets monthly in Honolulu at First Unitarian Church or Harris United Methodist Church, third Tuesday of every month, from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. unless otherwise noted. Each month, one or more speakers address topics of interest to the interfaith community. More information »
