The first-ever rural Nevada multi-faith dialogue, involving diverse religions and denominations, will be held in Fallon on July 16.
It will involve dialogue among Christian (various denominations), Muslim, Hindu, Buddhist, Jewish, Baha’i, Native-American faiths; and even include an Atheist thinker. Christian speakers will represent Roman Catholic, Protestant, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints traditions.
After presentations, diverse religious leaders will be open to questions by the public. The organizers hope to make this gathering an annual feature.
Co-conveners of this multi-faith dialogue -- Rev Dawn Blundell of Epworth UMC and the Fallon Interfaith Group, and Hindu statesman Rajan Zed of Reno -- point out that “peace lies at the heart of all religions. We have more in common than we have in conflict. Despite our very different traditions, honest dialogue among us brings us mutual enrichment and helps us create harmony in the community. We can learn from each other.”
This dialogue event, to be held at 4:00pm on Saturday, July 16 at The Wolf Center, 457 Esmeralda Street, Fallon, Nevada; is free and open to all. Coffee, tea and snacks will be provided. For questions, please contact at 775-423-4714 or [email protected]g
