Interfaith Dinner Dialogues Planned for Sept. 14

We are joining InterFaith Works in Interfaith Dinner Dialogues on Thursday, Sept. 14 from 6 to 8:30 pm in homes around the greater Syracuse community. Organized by InterFaith Works of Central New York, these annual dialogues bring together diverse groups of 8-12 people around a simple vegetarian dinner for friendly, facilitated conversation about faith and spirituality. In place of our regular September program, there will be several women’s gatherings. For more information contact Sue Savion, president of Women Transcending Boundaries, suesavion6@gmail.com (315-446-6939), or Daryl Files at InterFaith Works, dfiles@interfaithworkscny.org.

Book Club to Discuss ‘The Book of Mormon Girl’

Our Book Club will meet on Sept. 25 to discuss The Book of Mormon Girl: A Memoir of an American Faith by Joanna Brooks. From her days of feeling like “a root beer among the Cokes”—Coca-Cola being a forbidden fruit for Mormon girls like her—Joanna Brooks always understood that being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints set her apart from others. But, in her eyes, that made her special; the devout LDS home she grew up in was filled with love, spirituality, and an emphasis on service. For information about the book club location, call Jennifer Roberts Crittenden, 315-633-2817.

Join a Habitat for Humanity Interfaith Build

We are invited to participate in a Habitat for Humanity build in Syracuse this fall, forming a crew of up to 10 people working on two homes in the Hixon Street area of Syracuse, near Sunnycrest Park. If you are interested contact Sue Savion, president of Women Transcending Boundaries, suesavion6@gmail.com (315-446-6939), and let her know what dates you are available. 

Sycamore Hill Gardens Tour May 21

We enjoyed beautiful May flowers at Sycamore Hill Gardens on Sunday, May 21. This is an amazing private family garden located  west of the village of Marcellus. We explored nearly 40 acres of breathtaking views: 500 varieties of trees, 200 varieties of flowering shrubs and perennials, ceremonial bells, and sculptures. Bonnie Shoultz from the Zen Center of Syracuse led a Buddhist meditation and Ann Pia guided a series of Tai Chi Chih movements.

Discussion of Death and Dying Concludes Life Cycle Series

The theme of our April 23 Life Cycles program was “Death and Dying.” We had panelists from Buddhist, Methodist, Quaker, Muslim, and Jewish faith communities who shared their experiences, addressing two questions: how death and dying have affected their life personally and professionally, and the principal thoughts, teachings, and rituals of their community about death and dying.
