There Is No Other: Islam as Nonviolence
Longest Night Services
Christmas can be a challenging time, especially for those experiencing grief or loss. On Tuesday, December 22, two churches will offer a service that makes room for sorrow in the midst of cheer. St. Barnabas on the Desert (Scottsdale) will meet at 4:30 p.m. and St. Andrew’s (Tucson) will gather at 6:00 p.m. All are welcome.
Trinity Church (Kingman) will be hosting an Interfaith Day of Peace and Unity service on Friday, January 8 at 6:00 p.m. Those in attendance will include representatives from Masjid Ibrahim Mosque, Divine Savior Catholic Community (an independent Catholic Church), Grace Lutheran Church, and Trinity Episcopal Church. The service is open to the public. All are welcome and invited to attend.
