The third annual Bowling Green Community Interfaith Breakfast is quickly approaching. It will be held on Wednesday, April 5 at the Junior Fair building of the Wood County Fairgrounds (13800 W. Poe Rd). The Breakfast is presented by Not In Our Town Bowling Green, in collaboration with the City of Bowling Green Human Relations Commission, and Bowling Green State University. The Breakfast will be served from 7:15 – 7:45 a.m., with the program beginning at 8:00 a.m.
The program will feature brief presentations from speakers reflecting a variety of major religious streams – Hinduism, Christianity, Buddhism, Judaism, Islam and Native American spirituality. The theme will be “Building Peace through Understanding: Mythbusting,” with speakers addressing the challenges to peace which come from public misconceptions. Music will be offered by the Bowling Green High School Madrigals and by musicians from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. In addition, art presentations on the theme of “peace” will be unveiled from local elementary school students. Mayor Richard Edwards and BGSU President Mary Ellen Mazey will provide opening remarks. Superintendent of Bowling Green City Schools Francis Scruci will also bring greetings.
The event is free and open to the public. However, reservations are required by next Friday, March 24, and can be made by contacting Alex Solis (NIOT BG Co-Chair) at firstname.lastname@example.org or calling (419) 372-9452. There will also be free bus transportation from BGSU.
