Massachusetts Interfaith Group Inspires Formation of New Groups
From Sharon Dickinson Meltz

Trinity Episcopal Church, 81 Elm Street, Concord, MA, is pleased to welcome all to an adult forum featuring the Daughters of Abraham at 9AM, Sunday, September 23, 2012.

Born in response to 9/11, the mission of the Daughters of Abraham is to overcome stereotypes and to foster mutual respect and understanding among Muslim, Jewish and Christian women. Through the discussion, insights and relationships that grow out of regular book group meetings, they hope to learn about the commonalities and differences found in Judaism, Christianity and Islam and to develop an interfaith community of women who can speak intelligently about the Abrahamic faiths. Every group includes a fairly even mix of women who are Christian, Muslim and Jewish.

Whether you are interested in joining or starting a group, or just learning about this amazing faith-based network, please come for a fascinating presentation led by Mary Lou Lovecchio.

The Forum meets in the Parish Hall (River Street entrance) from 9-9:45AM most Sunday mornings during the program year with speakers sharing on one of six themes—word, worship, wonder, world, witness, work—each being an important aspect connecting faith with everyday life. Professional childcare is available in the nursery.
