In our world of poverty, violence, and pollution, all religions are called to repair the world, to make it a better place. In this Year of Interfaith Service, it is important that we come together to look at how our religious traditions and scriptures have helped in this effort, as well as ways in which they have hindered. We are called to be of service to our fellow humans, to those in need, to our environment, and to bring peace. Join us, as we explore the theme: To Repair the World: How Has Religion Helped and Hindered?
Featured Speakers are Dr. Cynthia Campbell, Rabbi Dr. Donniel Hartman, and Ingrid Mattson.

We are very excited to announce that we have received a generous grant from the Grand Rapids Community Foundation to expand our interfaith service initiatives to focus more on youth & college campuses, with funding to help develop interfaith leaders at Grand Valley State University, Aquinas College, and Calvin College, as well as support upcoming programming like Eboo Patel and our Triennial Dialogue this October. We can't wait to see our community come together in this interfaith and inter-institutional effort!
