North American Interfaith Network Issues Save The Date for Detroit Connect

The Interfaith Leadership Council of Metropolitan Detroit is hosting this year’s NAIN conference Sunday, August 10 through Wednesday August 13 at Michigan’s Wayne State University. Connect 2014 will focus on a theme of Bridging Borders and Boundaries, and is now open for early bird registration.

Dr. Mary Nelson, the Parliament’s executive director, says she is grateful that there are opportunities like NAIN where the Interfaith community is strengthened. “The Parliament seeks to better connect with other interfaith groups and is happy to encourage this important relationship as we all work together to better achieve a peaceful, just, and sustainable world.”

Parliament representatives at the 2013 Toronto event enjoyed celebrating 25 years of NAIN, and learning the history of the 1993 Connect held in conjunction with the centenary Parliament of the World’s Religions in Chicago, from attendees who were in attendance for both, and was as an animating moment for the interfaith community as it began to globalize.

More information will be shared as it becomes available. For now, download NAIN Connect 2014 official Save the Date here.
