OneJax and the UNF Interfaith Center want to learn more
about the communities they serve and encourage productive discussions about
inclusion and diversity. As a diverse community with people from a multitude of
backgrounds, nationalities, ethnic groups, religious traditions, gender
identities, and sexual orientations, how do we live together, work together,
play together, worship together? What needs to happen in our community to build
a more inclusive society? These intimate Suppers are designed to encourage
meaningful dialogue in our community. Students will sit in groups of 8-10 with
a community leader to discuss these questions. Dinner will be provided.
If you’ve ever attended a Coffee & Conversation or
Speedfaithing event, you’ve heard people share their stories in a way that was
impactful and educational. Perhaps you’ve even considered that your story might
be worth telling. Come practice writing and sharing your own story of finding
yourself at this workshop.
What is a “spiritual practice”? Come explore a variety of
ways to pray, reflect and meditate with the UNF Interfaith Center’s affiliated
chaplains. Feel free to stop in as you are available to check out a variety of
facilitated and self-guided stations. Snacks will be provided.
