Pastor Don moved from Seattle to Minneapolis in 2013, so for many local programs Pastor Dave Brown, recently retired pastor of Immanuel Presbyterian Church in Tacoma, stands in for Don and becomes their Pacific Northwest Interfaith Amigo.

Why Is Interfaith Conversation So Challenging?

7 PM, Wednesday, February 27, University of Puget Sound

Wheelock Student Center, Murray Boardroom

1500 North Warner, Tacoma

Can interfaith collaboration help our polarized society communicate
across what often appear to be insurmountable barriers?

The University of Puget Sound Center for Intercultural and Civic Engagement (CICE) welcomes the Pacific Northwest Interfaith Amigos—Rabbi Ted Falcon, Imam Jamal Rahman, and Pastor Dave Brown—back to Puget Sound for an evening conversation about collaboration and friendship-building across Jewish, Christian, and Muslim spiritual traditions. 

Using their own personal stories, the core teachings of their respective traditions, and warm mix of humor and humility, Rabbi Ted, Imam Jamal, and Pastor Dave make space for the community to engage in this vital conversation.  

Everyone is welcome for this engaging and inclusive exploration of interfaith friendship.
