Austin

Austin's Interfaith Environmental Network holds a regular symposium on the first Tuesday of most months. The next symposium will be Tuesday, October 2nd at 7:00pm at Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary, in the McCord Community Center. This month's symposium, "Finding Our Place in Nature" will feature a panel discussion between Islam Mossaad (Lead Imam, North Austin Muslim Community Center) and Kosho McCall (Head Priest, Austin Zen Center), moderated by Tom Vandestadt (Head Pastor, Congregational Church of Austin).

These monthly forums are attended by anywhere from 20-60 people each month, and it's an active, engaged, and justice-seeking community that welcomes people of all faith traditions (and those who profess no faith!).

Fort Worth

Fort Worth Interfaith Power & Light is planning an interfaith panel presentation and conversation, "Water Matters," to be held at Brite Divinity School on Monday evening, October 15th. Stay tuned for more details!

If you have questions about any of these events or would like to get involved, great! Please contact Amanda.
