The program format will include:
An interfaith dialogue with the audience interacting with four guest speakers representing groups that have been oppressed: Jews, Muslims, African Americans and Transgender/Gay.
We will show a video (1/2 hour) from FACING HISTORY AND OURSELVES of the film Weapons of the Spirit. This is a documentary of a small French town of 5000 peasants that saved 5000 Jews escaping the Holocaust.
We hope to attract SIU students and community members from Carbondale’s religious groups.

Clergy are asked to vest and to meet at the church at 3:45pm at the very latest so you can be assigned a part of the service to read.
