A New Day and a New Name: Third Thursday Conversations

Program Feature

A New Day and a New Name:
Third Thursday Conversations

In response to comments by scores of friends of Interfaith Winston-Salem, our monthly program called “Conversations” is changing dates and now will be held on the third Thursday of each month.  We have given it the catchy name of “Third Thursday Conversations” to help you remember.

Many respondents in our survey said our previous meeting night – the third Tuesday – conflicted with other activities and said that they preferred Thursday evening.  We encourage you to go ahead and mark your calendars to reserve every Third Thursday.  Reservations are not required.

The gatherings will continue to be held in the Activity Building at Highland Presbyterian Church at 2380 Cloverdale Ave. in Winston-Salem.  The Social Hall is located across the street from the sanctuary and ample parking is available in the adjacent, well-lighted parking lot.  The Activity Building permits us to use state-of-the-art video presentations and to adjust for large and small groups.

We will kick off Third Thursday Conversations January 19 with dynamic young minister and social justice advocate, Rev. Terrance Hawkins from Winston-Salem First (the former Winston-Salem First Assembly Church).  In recognition of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday in January, Rev. Hawkins invites us to reconsider our understanding of “Race and Faith Communities in America Today.”

As an African-American pastor serving in a large, multi-racial congregation, Terrance will have much to offer to help us grow in our knowledge and understanding these issues.
