Put Faith Into Action By Sponsoring/Implementing Community Service Projects
We will meet in Room 204 in the Jones Building
At the October 5th meeting -
ORDINARY WOMEN will host members of the Sisterhood of Saalam/Shalomorganization for lunch on October 5th.
Saalam/Shalom is a fairly new organization in the U S and the Houston chapter was formed in April of this past year. The goal is for Muslim and Jewish women to get to know each other as human beings. It is not aimed at learning the theology of either faith. It is formed to promote friendship and respect between the two groups.
We will meet for lunch here at St Paul’s at 12 noon on OCTOBER 5th with Muslim members as our guests and add the Jewish ladies to our “mix” on November 2 at St Paul’s. We hope to know each other better, to build bridges of friendship, and to grow in our respect for each other as we share our sameness as well as our differences. We want to reaffirm that ALL of us need each other and encourage growth in our relationships.
