Tomorrow night is the final night of the Interfaith Community of Roland Park’s speaker series entitled “Welcoming ‘the Stranger’ in our Midst: Walking the Path of Radical Hospitality to Immigrants, Refugees & Asylees.” The final lecture will be held at 7 p.m. at the Church of the Redeemer, 5603 North Charles Street.
The Interfaith Community of Roland Park consists of congregations in and nearby the Roland Park neighborhood that seek to reflect our interfaith community where we can come together, build understanding and appreciation of our (and other) unique expressions of faith, and reach out to serve others together. These congregations include:
- Baltimore Shambhala Centre
- Bolton Street Synagogue
- Congregation Beit Tikvah
- First Christian Church (Disciples of Christ)
- Mt. Olivet Christian Church (Disciples of Christ)
- North Baltimore Mennonite Church
- Roland Park Presbyterian Church
- St. Andrew’s Christian Community
- St. David’s Episcopal Church
- The Church of the Redeemer
- The Gathering of Baltimore
The series is intended to provide basic, background information to people of all faiths who are concerned about the plight of immigrants (particularly the undocumented), refugees and asylees in our city in our current climate; and are seeking to be equipped with both spiritual guidance and practical resources for how to act and what to do.
