A video about Inclusivity in Grand Junction

The video (link below - approx. 11 minutes) was shown at a February gathering of religious leaders and congregants in Grand Junction. It was followed by small group discussions related to diversity, racism, inclusion, and similar topics. The event brought many people closer together. It also gave people the opportunity to explore their own biases, beliefs, or welcoming nature. The video is entitled " GJ Inclusion ." It's a thoughtful presentation. Are we as welcoming as we declare to be? Let it begin with me. # # #

Inter-religious Sharing & Lunch - Members of GVIN ask: Who is God?

The Baha'i Community hosted our 5th Inter-religious Sharing in their lovely home in Grand Junction on Feb. 26th, 2020. Five religious leaders spoke on the topic "Who is God?"    Two denominations of Christianity represented by The Heart of Grand Junction and The Spirit of Life Church; also present were members of the Baha'i faith and Family Federation for World Peace.   There was a beautiful spirit of sincere listening and freedom to share openly with one another. We all appreciated each faith's understanding of God. We all got to know each other a little better over good food, dessert and coffee.
