Dinner with Others
As a faith community, we welcome the long-overdue conversations about matters of race and racism in the United States, as painful and as costly as those conversations have been. We desire, in support of our values of oneness and equality, to stand as part of the solution.
We believe collective healing starts with individual healing. And we believe individual healing starts when we begin to experience each other as individuals again. With special thanks to The Interfaith Amigos, Dinner with Others is a carefully-designed program designed to facilitate such a re-humanization among individuals.
Historically, this program has proven to facilitate lasting friendships and to heal painful discords among individuals of various faith traditions. In 2022, we have refocused this program, with humble hope for similar results, for individuals of various skin tones and ethnic identities.
Welcome to Dinner with Others, 2022!
Share a story. Shake a hand. Laugh. Eat. Connect.
Let us rehumanize each other, as brothers and sisters at a global table, for the greater good of all.
Facilitated by Dr. Richard Loren Held and Rev. Nina Clark
*All guests will be asked to check positionality at the door. All convincing and converting, all self-righteousness and self-importance, all aggressiveness and argumentativeness can be picked up upon exit, if-desired. Otherwise, leave them. We’ll be happy to dispose of them for you.

The natural order of things knows how to support its creation, both in whole and in part! The natural order of things (by whatever name you choose to call it) knows how to meet the needs of body and soul alike. So, the troubling-yet-empowering question becomes: are you cooperating with the natural order of things or frustrating the natural order of things? Join with others willing to “get themselves out of the way” of that which longs to prove itself. Third Tuesdays from August 16th – December 20th; 7:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m.
