Programs include: lectures and workshops with our featured guests, events for middle and high school students, lunchtime discussions hosted throughout the city, a day of reflection hosted at area labyrinths, film screenings, and the return of such annual events as the Presbyterian Seminary Luncheon, the Children of Abraham Dinner and the Interfaith Breakfast.
