Join Us Thursday Night for Food & Dialogue

Our first BIC gathering of the season is this coming Thursday evening at the Brookings Public Library. Please join us for a potluck meal at 6:30 pm, with conversation to follow.

Our suggested theme for the evening is "race." This grew out of a conversation in the planning committee, especially as the George Zimmerman trial (being prosecuted for fatally shooting Trayvon Martin in Florida) was in the news at the time. On Thursday evening we might ask the question, "How does race impact relationships between faiths, for better or worse?"

The planning committee would also like to take some time to discuss the recent threat to bomb Syria. Is there a consensus in our group about how such situations should be handled? Would we want to go on the public record?

We will gather in the Cooper Room on the second floor of the library. We would enjoy your presence even if you are unable to bring a dish to pass. Please feel free to invite others.
