Dear Faith Leaders,
The last thing that any of us needs is another meeting. Yet, we hope what we are asking for is not just another meeting. Interfaith Worker Justice of San Diego County and University Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) have been observing that there is a strong faith presence in our community, however there is no overarching organization that serves to get interfaith communities together on a regular basis with the purpose of learning about one another and discussing our efforts in the community. Unfortunately, this means that we often work in silos and duplicate our efforts. Imagine the transformation that could happen in our community if we all combined our efforts. We are dreaming of a new Multifaith Collaborative that would fill that gap and help us to work together more effectively.
We are hoping that you might be willing to give two hours of your time on Wednesday, July 25 from 11:30-1:30 at University Christian Church (3900 Cleveland Ave., SD 92103) with lunch provided to talk about the creation of this Multifaith Collaborative. The sole purpose of our meeting is to bring diverse communities together to discuss what they’re doing in the hope that there will be ways to increase collaboration. We do not want to duplicate efforts, so if there is some organization that is already serving in this capacity, we will gladly step aside and work in partnership with that group. However, if no such group exists, we are hoping that you might be willing to commit to one hour/month over lunch (which University Christian Church is willing to provide) to simply be present with other faith leaders and discuss ways that our communities could collaborate.
Please let us know if you’ll be joining us on July 25 by responding to the invitation at the following link:
If you are not able to attend this time, fear not! You’ll be kept on this list until you ask not to be.
For those who have reserved your ticket via Eventbrite, thank you. For those who have indicated they plan to attend via email or have not yet had an opportunity to do so, please confirm your attendance via Eventbrite. It helps with logistical planning and the amount of food needed.
There will be lunch for those who keep a vegetarian diet for faith or personal reasons.
We look forward to the possibilities!
