The Multi-Faith Collaborative
at Open Spirit
The Multi-Faith Collaborative brings people from diverse spiritual and cultural traditions together to build bridges of understanding, appreciation, and friendship.
Our offerings have included:
Celebrations of holidays from our different faith traditions, including periodic Shabbat dinners, Passover Seders, an annual Iftar (the Muslim fast-breaking during the season of Ramadan) and more. The celebrations are open to people of all faiths and people who do not identify with a faith tradition, and are opportunities to learn and build community in a joyous setting.
A monthly interfaith book club and periodic special book discussions.
Multi-faith prayer, meditation and music gatherings in times of community crisis.
Comparative scripture studies on themes such as loving kindness and creation.
A monthly gathering called "Common Ground," which facilitates dialogue between people who identify with a faith tradition and those who identify as secular humanists, agnostics or atheists.
A "Spiritual and Healing" panel discussion series, reflecting on healing in different spiritual traditions.
Our special programs include:
