Fairfax Interfaith Friendship Walk

May 21 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Free

We invite you to join us for the “Fairfax Interfaith Friendship Walk” with the mission of bringing faith communities together to appreciate each other and feel part of the same whole despite our differences on May 21st, 2017.
Throughout the approximately 3 miles walk we will visit 8 different house of worship in the Fairfax community where you will have the chance to engage members of the community of different backgrounds in constructive dialogue in an effort to get to know and appreciate each other. It is important in todays world to reach out to our neighbors who may be strangers in order to unify as a community who is all part of the same whole.

 

The walk will take place on May 21st between 2 PM and 5 PM. We will start at the Fairfax United Methodist Church and continue with visiting St Leo the Great Catholic Church, Daniels Run Peace Church, Ezher Mosque, Truro Anglican Church, Fairfax Presbyterian Church, Fairfax Baptist Church, and end with the Christ Lutheran Church. We will spend 5 minutes at each stop refreshing and learning about that faith tradition. Please note that since there is no Jewish temple or a non-Abrahamic place of worship within the walking distance of this route, those faith traditions will be invited to have a space in some of the churches along this route. Members of these traditions are encouraged to join us for walking together for our community.
