Interfaith at the Meeting House : Monday 8th November

Happy Diwali to our friends celebrating their New Year.

The Friends Meeting House is hosting the Dacorum Interfaith Network (DIN) on Monday 8th November at 7:30pm

This will be a Social Get Together with Bring & Share Food and Drink, celebrating Interfaith Week.

If you are able to attend please bring some food to share:

Sweet or Savoury, with an Interfaith theme requested to celebrate diversity, many cultures.

The cultures might include a few traditional “English” items and you might bring items not necessarily representing your own culture, for example Italian or Far Eastern Asia. There are facilities to microwave or oven heat but where possible bring pre-cooked or fresh items. Such Bring & Share events generally produce more than enough quantity and variety of food without needing advance planning. Remember that many of our friends are vegetarian, foods containing meat or fish are welcome but please label them clearly.  Also if you have special dietary limitations (e.g. gluten free) please label. Fruit juices or cordials welcome.

If you would like to attend please email Norman Spink NormanSpink@hotmail.com

Local Interfaith Events for Interfaith Week

Saturday 13th and Saturday 20th November – Tree Planting at Little Hadham

North Herts Interfaith Forum has been working with the owner of a field in Little Hadham to start an interfaith peace forest.  We now have dates for the first planting of 150 saplings:  2021, . Meet in the car park at Little Hadham Village Hall, SG11 2BP.  Trees don’t just combat climate change – they are symbolic in many faith traditions of growth, harmony and reaching upwards.   Bring your friends! Bring the family!  There will be children from the local school helping too.  Bring your own refreshments. The saplings are small so the work shouldn’t be too hard. 10 am – 12 noon

Any other queries, contact me. Chris Kell chriskell37@gmail.com
