TACOMA, WASH. – Associated Ministries, an interfaith organization in Tacoma, will be hosting its second biennial Interfaith Women’s Conference. “Seeking Peace: Our Journey” will give attendees the opportunity to explore the potential and power of interfaith collaboration, renew their personal spiritual life, and engage with their community to spur positive change.
“The Interfaith Women’s conference is an event unlike any other in the Puget Sound area,” says Melinda Huish, the event co-chair. “Bringing women together of all faiths—Buddhist, Hindu, Christian, Muslim, Jewish, Mormon, and so many others—to talk about real solutions for peace and change in our communities is an amazing thing.”
This meaningful event will take place on Saturday, March 9, 2019 from 9 a.m.- 5 p.m. at Curtis Junior High School in University Place. This full-day conference is designed for women of all ages and faiths, and will offer pre-conference yoga and meditation sessions, a keynote speech from Tacoma Peace Laureate Melannie Denise Cunningham, three 75-minute workshops, lunch, and hands-on service projects throughout the day.
“We have so much more strength when we work together, are kind to one another and have compassion,” says Huish. “When we follow this road to peace, we’re in it together.”
