Journeys ArtworkLove God/Love Neighbor:  The intersection of religion and community in a diverse world

In today’s world, it is vital that we learn about and engage with people of other faith traditions.  At Smoke Rise we are committed to interfaith study and dialogue.   We begin this quarter with an overview of the two Abrahamic Religions led by Dr. Rob Nash.  Then we hear from actual practitioners of these faith traditions.  Our neighboring city of Clarkston is a community  of many nationalities, languages, and religions, including one of the largest refugee communities in the country.  We will learn more about the city and the refugee mission we are now supporting.
