The People of God: A Sacred Prism

An Interfaith Conference to Celebrate the Unity and Common Life We Share in the Holy One

Sunday, April 12, 5:00 p.m. through Tuesday, April 14, noon

Franciscan Center of Tampa, Florida

In these times of uncertainly, fear, and suspicion of people from different faith traditions, this conference

affirms the Divine Light that shines through all people of Godly faith, and offers the opportunity to experience

Led by a rabbi, a Christian priest, an imam, and an interfaith minister, participants will hear presentations, and

experience some of the spiritual practices of the three Abrahamic traditions of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam

(including the Sufi tradition), with portions of Holy Scripture, music, poetry, and movement. Participants will

also have opportunity to share among themselves how the spiritual practices of their faith traditions inform

and guide their lives, and to offer ways that we can go forth from the conference to be witnesses of unity and

that Life-Giving Spirit in an interfaith gathering.


Conference Cost:

$260.00 person, includes program, room (double occupancy), and board

(dietary considerations for interfaith gathering).
