Building Bridges of Interfaith Unity – Interfaith Women’s Conference
March 4 @ 8:30 AM - 4:30 PM
Join us March 4, 2017 for the inaugural Interfaith Women’s Conference, an event for women of all faiths throughout the entire Puget Sound region. Together, we’ll experience the power of unity and discover new ways to strengthen our communities. As we learn from and grow with one another at the Interfaith Women’s Conference, we will explore ways we can work together to assist more people in need.
This one-day conference was designed for women who are interested in exploring the potential and power of interfaith collaboration, renewing their personal spiritual life, and engaging with their community to spur positive change. In an often-divisive world, the Interfaith Women’s Conference will emphasize that which unites us—compassion and understanding.
Understanding. Respect. Cooperation.
We are passionate about engaging all women—those who are affiliated with a particular religious tradition as well as those of no specific faith. This includes those who are spiritual but not religious. The Interfaith Women’s Conference is not only for women who attend churches, temples, and mosques. It is also for non-affiliated women who are spiritually curious and who support religious pluralism, respectful dialogue, and engaged social action that benefits communities. – I’m ready to register – sign me up!
The conference will offer a keynote presentation, three workshop periods with 24 workshops to choose from, lunch, a closing ceremony, spiritual practice rooms, wake-up yoga and contemplative practice, as well as booths for sponsors, vendors, nonprofits, and communities of faith. Attendees will choose among multiple workshop sessions each period with themes such as sacred acts in everyday life; women’s faith journeys; empowering ourselves, serving our communities; strength in adversity; and spiritual arts. Workshops will explore key topical areas including faith; community and family; and service. Vendors will include women-owned businesses and services/products of interest to women. – I’d like to volunteer at this event!
The Interfaith Women’s Conference, presented by Associated Ministries (AM), will be held at Curtis Senior High School in University Place, WA on March 4, 2017, 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. Community volunteers from numerous faith traditions will coordinate and carry out the conference alongside AM staff.
We hope you can join us for this special event that will change lives, communities, and you.
