Our September Monthly Focus is on Interfaith and Local Agency Collaboration

Get to know our friends in the Valley!
 
One of the ways we become our best selves is by collaborating with others on projects of shared values.  Collaboration helps us to keep growing, stretching, and being exposed to new ideas and the diversity of the many different faith based communities in the world around us.
 
This week’s action is to check out the Interfaith Solidarity Network website and list of upcoming activities.  St. Luke is a member of the Network and has partnered with the organization in celebrating Thanksgiving, marching to make our unity across of faith communities more visible and in a wide variety of learning opportunities – in person, and more recently, on Zoom. Some will remember our shared exchanges with both the West Valley Islamic Center and with the Jewish religious studies students from De Toledo High School—just two examples of our past and current interfaith connections.
