Fostering Interfaith Relationships on the Eastside (FIRE) invites Eastside locals to the 10th in a series of Dinner Dialogues aimed at fostering interfaith relationships on April 22, from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m., hosted by East Shore Unitarian Church on 12700 Southeast 32nd St. in Bellevue.

This Dialogue will be on the topic “Living with Others in a World of Diverse Beliefs”. There will be a panel discussion among several world beliefs, including Atheist, Baha’i, Christian, Hindu, Jewish, Muslim, and Unitarian, on topics such as what different beliefs teach about how to interact with people of other beliefs, what followers are taught about evangelizing or converting others, and how branches of different belief communities view or interact with each other.

The audience will be able to ask questions of the panel and engage in stimulating interfaith dialogue with panel members and each other.

This is a potluck dinner, so FIRE requests that attendees bring their favorite dish to share, labeled showing the ingredients to help people with food allergies and preferences make choices.

Everyone is invited to come and enjoy a fun evening of interfaith dialogue. Attendees don’t need to be affiliated with any faith or faith community to participate. To RSVP, email rsvp@fire-wa.org.
