Interfaith Gathering is excited for 2016! The Iowa City gathering welcomes Celeste Davis as its lead organizer and facilitator following founder Amanda Edwards’ move to the Atlanta, GA area. Stay tuned for more information about Iowa City’s spring gatherings and potential expansion outside the Iowa City area.
Life brings all sorts of surprises. Interfaith Gathering founder, Amanda Edwards, will be moving to Georgia in several weeks. This unexpected change provides opportunity to think about transition and how women deal with change, particularly from a spiritual standpoint. On Tuesday, October 20, 2015, Amanda will offer meditations on change from a variety of religious perspectives. Then, participants will have the opportunity to discuss and think about what Interfaith Gathering in Iowa City will look like for the immediate and long-term future. This is your chance to shape and guide the future for diverse women who want to transform the world. Join us 10-11:30 am on Tuesday, October 20, 2015. First Presbyterian Church hosts the gathering at 2701 Rochester Ave., Iowa City, IA (lower level room 14). Quality childcare provided.
This Tuesday, October 6, 2015, we welcome speaker Lori Wunder to Interfaith Gathering. Lori will be offering perspectives about how culture, race, and faith intersect. Lori and her husband, both Christian pastors, adopted a son from Ethiopia several years ago. This experience, coupled with living in an area in Iowa with a majority white population and her role as a religious leader, has shaped her significantly. Lori has much to share about encountering differences, building bridges and making peace in a diverse world. Join us from 10-11:30 am. First Presbyterian Church in Iowa City hosts the gathering in its lower level (room 14). Quality childcare provided.
Tomorrow, Tuesday, September 15, 10-11:30 am is the first Interfaith Gathering in Iowa City for Fall 2015. The gathering is now open to ALL women (not just moms, as in the past). The gathering continues to include women of all ages and faith backgrounds.
