Abilene Interfaith Council & Cafe Conversations
The Abilene Interfaith Council is a non-profit organization of individuals and congregations in the Abilene area dedicated to promoting communication, understanding, and peace among people of different faith who live together in our community.
We meet monthly during the school year at various times and locations, depending on the schedules of the various speakers. Events are publicized on our Facebook page.
Cafe Conversations are monthly informal gatherings in a relaxed atmosphere to discuss issues of religion and ethics in our community and the world. Everyone is welcome to join us on the last Thursday of the month at 7:00 pm, Mezamiz Deus Coffee House, 3909 South 7th,
Since 2004 AIC has sponsored a community celebration on the National Day of Prayer in May. Prayers for peace are led by participants from our own community’s multiple faith traditions.
In 1999 three Abilene friends – a Jew, a Muslim, and an Episcopal priest – decided to create an organization where people of all faith traditions could gather for a meal and learn about each other. The motto selected was, “Breaking Bread Together in Peace.”
Since then AIC has sponsored programs and panels from a variety of faith traditions, including Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Hindu, Baha’i, and Pagan.
AIC has brought outstanding speakers, scholars, and musicians to our community and partnered with Abilene’s universities and museums for spacial presentations:
* Dr. Arun Gandhi, Grandson of the Mahatma, on peacemaking,
* Dr. Diana Eck, Harvard University and Harvard Divinity School, Director of the Pluralism Project on increasing religious pluralism,
* Maestro David Itkin, Abilene Philharmonic, on the inspiration for his Pulitzer-nominated symphony “Jonah,”
* Latif Bolat, Muslim musician and poet, on the healing sounds of ancient Turkish mystic music traditions,
* Dr. Rob Sellers, International Board Chair of the Parliament of the World’s Religions, on why Interfaith matters to us and to the world.Did you find apk for android? You can find new Free Android Games and apps.
