Program Theme: ‘Understanding the Other’

Our upcoming monthly programs will revolve around the theme “Understanding the Other.” We will meet the third Monday of the month, from 6:00 to 8:00 pm, at Jowonio School, 3049 E. Genesee St., Syracuse. Our first meeting, on Sept. 17, explored ways we view or have viewed people as “the other” and what steps we might take so that we don’t see them as “the other.”

Dinner Dialogues Set for Sept. 27

InterFaith Works is hosting its 9th annual Dinner Dialogues on Thursday, Sept. 27. This is an opportunity to build relationships and learn from other people’s faith. Dialogue is to love, what the blood is to the body. When the flow of blood stops, the body dies. When dialogue stops, love dies and resentment and hate are born. The dinners occur in homes throughout the community; consider hosting one, facilitating one, or attending one. For registration and information contact Daryl Files at dfiles@interfaithworkscny.org or Gracious Moyo at gmoyo@interfaithworkscny.org.

Book Club to Discuss ‘My Promised Land’

The Oct. 22 meeting of the book club will discuss My Promised Land, by Ari Shavit; it is about Israel. The following book club meeting, on Dec. 3, will discuss Salt Houses, by Hala Alyan; it is about Palestine. For information about meeting location, contact Jennifer Roberts Crittenden, 315-633-2817.

Sycamore Hill Gardens Tour

Once again, Sycamore Hill Gardens opened its grounds for our annual fundraiser on May 20. The nearly 40 acres of privately-owned land west of Marcellus include diverse statuary, koi ponds, stonework, a formal garden, a hedge maze and more.

Recent plantings of 10,000 trees and shrubs have turned the land surrounding the garden into one of New York State’s largest privately held bird sanctuaries. We welcomed spring (after a very long winter) at these beautiful walmartone login private gardens opened especially for us!
