Interfaith Ministries for Greater Houston (Interfaith Ministries), has compiled a Vital Conversations with Our Community lecture series study guide and feedback form.
The free study guide – produced by the Interfaith Relations and Community Partnerships team at Interfaith Ministries – examines components of each of the five Vital Conversations that Interfaith Ministries hosted in 2020. The guide includes a series of discussion questions to be shared with the larger community, including educators, students, faith groups, community groups and corporate groups to encourage further dialogue about the important topics covered in the series. The guide also contains QR codes to each of the video lectures in the original summer series.
The Vital Conversations with Our Community series is designed to bring a diverse group of people together for important conversations about topics affecting our community. Interfaith Relations & Community Partnerships hosted an inaugural conversation during summer 2020, featuring a dialogue with the “Three Amigos”, Archbishop Joseph A. Fiorenza, Rev. William A. Lawson, and the late Rabbi Samuel E. Karff. This conversation, aired on Juneteenth and in the wake of the death of George Floyd, was in response to Mr. Floyd’s death and was also a moving summary of the work of these three men, the friendship that has supported them, and the vision that has inspired them. All of the Vital Conversations episodes have been inspired by this initial conversation about civil rights, racial injustices and the struggle for a just society.
A second Vital Conversations with our Community lecture series is scheduled for the summer and fall of this year to continue this important conversation.
Thank you to the Vital Conversations with Our Community series sponsors, Bridgeway Capital Management and CITGO Petroleum.
