The Interfaith Alliance News

Seeking the renewal of the world

St. Andrew’s is a partner congregation of The Interfaith Alliance.  With their expertise in social justice advocacy to guide us, we can stay up to date on meaningful actions that can be taken to advocate for social and racial justice.  They provide education and up-to-date information on ways to affect the state legislative process and to participate in other events to influence the renewal of the world, which is part of the mission of St. Andrew’s.  You can check this site regularly.  Especially during the legislative session, we will try to keep you apprised of current legislation and of suggested actions you could take to make a difference.

If you have any questions or would like to get more involved or receive the weekly emails we get from The Interfaith Alliance, please contact Sue Torfin at storfin9@gmail.com

INTERFAITH ALLIANCE NEWS

The Progressive Congregations Network of The Interfaith Alliance (of which St. Andrew’s is a member) is beginning their year with the following exciting event about religious liberty. I would encourage anyone interested in learning more about the state of religious liberty in our country, current challenges to religious liberty, and ways to have an impact to come to all or part of this event presented by the Baptist Joint Committee.  If you have questions about this event or general questions about our involvement with The Interfaith Alliance, please let me know.  I will be your representative through the year and will bring to you current news and ways to be involved.  ~  Sue Torfin
The First DENVER METRO Progressive Congregations Network (PCN) gathering is on September 14.
In the interest of sharing resources we are SO EXCITED to partner with Calvary Baptist and the Baptist Joint Committee through a Conversation & Training about Religious Liberty, an issue that is CENTRAL to our work at Interfaith Alliance.  This program has three parts and while you are encouraged to attend all of it, you are welcome to attend any parts that your schedule and interest allows:
1. A morning conversation: The Why –> 10:00-11:30
2. The PCN Lunch (Our Who) –> 11:30-1:00
3. Afternoon training: The What–>   1:00-3:00
4. Afternoon Training: The How –>  3:00-5:00
The PCN will meet over lunch.  
 
We hope you can attend the whole day!  But if you can only attend part, please consider prioritizing the PCN lunch so we can launch our year together as progressive voices of faith in the public sphere.
To learn more details about the day’s training, please use the event webpage
To register for all or part of the day, please use this Registration Link. Registration Link
Registration fees for members the PCN are covered by the Interfaith Alliance.  Please select that option for payment when you register.
