SpokaneFAVS to present at Parliament of The World’s Religions

In October SpokaneFAVS will be presenting, “Creating Meaningful Interfaith Dialogue In Your Community In The Digital Age,” at the Parliament of The World’s Religions in Salt Lake City.

The Parliament says it is the oldest, largest, and most inclusive gathering of people of all faith and traditions. It draws 10,000 people from 50 faiths and 80 nations. This year’s speakers include The Dalai Lama, Karen Armstrong, Eboo Patel and other faith leaders.

Thousands of organizations submitted program proposals, according to the Parliament, and only a scatter were selected.

The workshop FAVS will be presenting will examine how organizations can use social media and the Web to bring people of various belief systems together to discuss religion and ethics in a sincere and respectful way, which is something FAVS has earned a reputation for doing well.

In addition, SpokaneFAVS has organized an interfaith road trip and will be traveling to the Parliament with 12 people.

“I’m so pleased to hear that not only will there be a large presence of the Inland Northwest at the Parliament, but that SpokaneFAVS will have the chance to share its story and its work with the world,” said Parliament Ambassador R. Skyler Oberst.

The Parliament will be held Oct. 15-19.

The FāVS workshop will be at 2 p.m., Oct. 19 in Room 355 E.
