Religious Identity:

Passing Down Faith through the Generations
Co-sponsor: ISAAC (Interfaith Strategy for Advocacy and Action in the Community) This panel of local religious leaders will explore how religious faith and traditions are passed from one generation to the next.  Discussion will spring from James McBride’s descriptions of his mother’s religious background and his own beliefs and traditions.  How did his mother, raised as an Orthodox Jew, raise James to be a believing, practicing Christian?

MODERATOR:  Linda MacDonald, pastor, North Presbyterian Church, and past president of ISAAC

All events free and open to the public.

Location: Galilee Baptist Church
