Thursday, Sept. 30
Join Twin Cities PBS for an interactive virtual event that explores how religious practices shape our communities. We consider how the religious season of Lent and observance of Ramadan inspire certain actions. We learn how one person’s faith journey led them to unexpected places and we ask one another how we can learn about one another’s religion with compassion and generosity.
TPT invites you to break bread with your neighbors to explore these questions and more with the help of community storytellers and original media designed to foster empathy and solidarity among our Muslim and non-Muslim communities.
Attendees located in the Twin Cities metro are invited to enjoy a meal provided by Afro Deli in St. Paul. Pick up details provided at registration.
Featuring: Host Hibo Guled, John Emery of Islamic Resource Group sharing a personal story, and Grant Two Bulls and Ayan Omar reflecting on the season of Lent and the observance of Ramadan.
Be My Guest is a multi-course engagement project, combining interactive events that center around food as an invitation for storytelling and short form media, creating conversation and connection between Muslim and non-Muslim communities across Minnesota.
Join us in making new connections — virtually — and engage in meaningful dialogue with the aim of activating empathy across differences. There is no cost to participate.
