“Food for Thought: Healing Mind, Body, Spirit and World” is the topic for the 21st Annual Interfaith Spring Colloquium held by the Jewish-Christian Dialogue of New Mexico. The Colloquium will examine how Christians and Jews respond to the world’s hungry and hurting, our differences and similarities in the quest for social justice.
The presenters are Rabbi Min Kantrowitz, Director of Shutafim: New Mexico Jewish Community Connections, and Dr. Mary Elizabeth Moore, Dean of the School of Theology at Boston University. The moderator is Kathy Freeze, Catholic Charities Community Outreach Liaison. There will be a special presentation by Carlos Navarro, grassroots anti-hunger advocate and journalist, on the creation of an Interfaith Coalition on Hunger.
Attendees are encouraged to bring nonperishable food items to benefit local food banks. Breakfast and lunch are included in the event.
