The goal of the annual series is to bridge understanding of the world’s religions by highlighting the differences and similarities of various faith traditions through artistic expressions rooted in the arts and humanities.
Join us for an evening of food, fellowship, and exploration around how different faiths interact with food and spiritually. Catered dishes from a variety of cultures and religious traditions will be shared as well as stories about the significance of these foods.
By providing an opportunity to engage with other faiths around a shared experience – food! – Franklin College and its partners invite attendees to learn about other religions not through doctrine, but through the experience of breaking bread together and sharing stories.
Dr. Adrian Miller, executive director of the Colorado Council of Churches and award-winning author of Soul Food: The Surprising Story of an American Cuisine, One Plate at a Time, will give a short presentation followed by a panel discussion featuring local practitioners of a variety of faiths.
This event is part of the 2023 Spirit & Place Festival
