Public Invited to Interfaith Dinner Dialogue on “Making Meaning in a Culture of Entertainment”

 

F.I.R.E. (Fostering Interfaith Relationships on the Eastside) invites you to the seventh in a series of Dinner Dialogues aimed at fostering interfaith relationships, on Sunday, May 15, 5PM to 8PM, hosted by Northlake Unitarian Universalist Church, 308 4th Avenue South, in Kirkland.

This Dialogue will be on the topic “Making Meaning in a Culture of Entertainment: Are faith, religion, and spiritual growth counter-cultural?”. We will explore areas such as the role of silence, music, and video in worship; how faith communities retain adherents, especially young people, in a world where so many distractions compete for their attention; how media-driven culture affects modes of worship and whether the traditional must give way or adapt to the modern; what the experience of faith communities has been in incorporating media and technology; and more.

A panel from a variety of world religions will present the perspectives of their faith communities, followed by stimulating interfaith discussions among all participants.

This is a potluck dinner, so please bring your favorite dish to share, labeled showing the ingredients to help people with food allergies and preferences make choices.

Everyone is invited to come and enjoy a fun evening of interfaith dialogue! Please email rsvp@fire-wa.org and let us know how many will be coming, so we can be sure to set up enough tables and chairs.
