Receptive Reverence

We live in a complex, multicultural world that encompasses many spiritual traditions and faiths. We are often confronted with the question of how to raise children to be open to new ideas and experiences in their broader community while continuing to guide them with values that are important to our own families and faith traditions. How do we teach our children and grandchildren to have respect for other faith traditions and to engage in an interfaith dialogue? How do we teach our selves to do so?

On Sunday, August 4 at 11:00 a.m. join us in the Founders Room for the final class in this series. Member Carol Gottliebsen leads a discussion on Holy Envy: Finding God in the Faith of Others by Barbara Brown Taylor. Young people ages five and up are invited to come for their own concurrent breakout session.

Sunday, August 11 - Field Trips to Zen Buddist Temple & Temple Beth Emeth
We continue to learn about other faith traditions by touring local worship spaces where others encounter the holy. Meet at First Pres at 12:30 p.m. to carpool. Our first stop is at 1:00 p.m. at the Zen Buddist Temple, 1214 Packard Street and the second stop is at 3:00 p.m. at Temple Beth Emeth, 2309 Packard St, Ann Arbor. Can you only visit one location? Feel free to meet at either place. Questions? Contact Rev. Blair Buckley,
