A cake made to celebrate the inaugural meeting of the IJC at Canadochly Lutheran
York Friends are excited to welcome the Council on Sunday, August 13, 2017 at 11:00 am to join us for worship, our shared meal, and a conversation afterward facilitated by Council member Carla Christopher, President of York Equality Fest and Education Chair of the YWCA's Racial Justice Committee. The IJC met at Canadochly Lutheran on Sunday, July 9 for a similar event (worship, shared meal, conversation). Those who gathered were deeply enriched to share in worship, to hear how Faith is working in the hearts and hands of Canadochly Lutheran, and to see how they are promoting peace and equity in the eastern part of our county.
The Interfaith Justice Council is a group of social justice-minded people of faith from all over York County, including congregations in New Freedom, East Prospect, the City of York, York Township, and Dover. Members meet once a month to promote interfaith dialogue and gain insight through our shared experiences. The "Social Justice Sundays" series creates a space where we worship with one another, share a meal, and take a look at how our congregations are showing up to do God's work in bringing peace and equity to our communities.
On Sunday, October 8, St. John Lutheran Church (175 East Main Street, New Freedom, 17349) will host the IJC and Suleyman Eris, the President of the Respect Graduate School in Bethlehem, PA. He will be the keynote speaker at our community discussion regarding interfaith dialogue with the Islamic community.
