A Michigan Avenue Forum on Tuesday, November 5

Michigan Avenue Forum with Cardinal Cupich and Wendi Geffen and Eboo Patel at Fourth Presbyterian Church       
With many aspects of today’s America tending to emphasize division and exclusion, with often destructive consequences, opportunities to come together as an interfaith community become ever more important, as we seek inspiration to regain a sense of common ground that promotes both civil discourse and faithful living together.
        On Tuesday, November 5 at 7:00 p.m. in the Sanctuary, join Cardinal Blase Cupich, Archbishop of Chicago; Rabbi Wendi Geffen, Senior Rabbi at North Shore Congregation Israel; and Eboo Patel, Founder and President of Interfaith Youth Core as they engage in dialogue about how love for God asks us to embrace rather than exclude each other.
        Come hear them share their own interfaith stories and explore how each person’s religious tradition motivates them to love God and work toward community.
