Auburn Public Library announces a new series of programs called Conversations: A Multi-Faith Perspective. The public is invited to listen in as clergy of different faiths have round-table discussions on different inter-faith topics. Each of the four monthly round-tables will be held on the first Tuesday of the month at the Auburn Public Library. All programs run from 12:30 to 1:30PM.
The idea for these discussions started when the new Rabbi of Temple Shalom in Auburn, Sruli Dresdner, met and spent an exhilarating week with his colleagues at the Maine Police Academy, sponsored by the Auburn Police Department’s Chaplaincy Program where he met Pastor Roger Cousineau of East Auburn Baptist Church, Rev. Doctor Jody Cohen Hayashida of First Universalist Church in New Auburn, and Pastor Richard Waller of the Auburn Church of the Nazarene.
Participants will be able to listen in as local religious leaders discuss their views and share their perspective among their colleagues. The audience will have an opportunity to ask questions which must be written down on the provided notecards.
Healthy Androscoggin joins us as we turn our attention to Healthy Lifestyles to kick off the new year! During this interactive class, we will explore the USDA’s My Plate and gain knowledge on how to choose and prepare healthy meals and beverages. We will play a game and prepare a healthy, delicious snack together. Handouts, prizes and free gifts will be provided. So that we can plan accordingly, registration is requested. This program is just for teens, ages 12-18!
