While we may be of different faiths, we have a strong sense of faith, family, community. We hold the values of freedom and human rights very high and I think that those are all a part of a very strong quilt that binds us together.
– Robert Mendez
The above quote sums Project Interfaith’s mission.
The Omaha-based non-profit grows understanding, respect and relationships among people of all faiths, beliefs and cultures. It provides innovative community-building programs that educate and engage.
And it’s why momaha.com is excited to announce a new partnership with Project Interfaith.
Momaha will sponsor its next community conversation,”Parenting in Pluralistic World: Raising Kids with a Strong Spiritual Identity While Respecting Those of Other Beliefs,” on April 11 at the Jewish Community Center, 333 S. 132nd St.
It’s an intimate conversation with Chris Boyatzis, a leading expert on religious and spiritual development in children, as he shares strategies parents can use to foster in their children a healthy spiritual identity while also instilling an appreciation for the diversity that exists within our community and world today.
Chris J. Boyatzis, Ph.D., is Professor of Psychology at Bucknell University in Lewisburg, PA. He is past-president of the Society for the Psychology of Religion and Spirituality, a division of the American Psychological Association. Dr. Boyatzis also serves on the editorial boards of many professional journals on religion and spirituality.
Make sure you swing by momaha’s booth at the event’s information fair. It’ll also feature various local faith-based and secular organizations that serve parents and children.
This program is open to the public and is being held solely for educational purposes. No proselytizing or promotion of a religion or belief system will be allowed.
Cost is $10 for non-students and $5 for students.
Child care is available for children between the ages of 3- to 12-years-old. Pre-registration is required in order to receive child care. Cost is $10 per child.
