The Interfaith Table Talk is a structured event which brings people of all faiths and no faith together for fellowship and friendship.
The event was inspired by a Project known as the the Amazing Faiths Dinner Dialogue which takes place throughout the year in many cities. The Dinner Dialogue was initially created in 2006 by Dr. Jill Carroll, who at that time was the Executive Director of the Boniuk Center for Religious Tolerance at Rice University in Houston, Texas.
Honoring the structure the Houston group has developed, guests are invited into someone's home to share a meal and dialogue together with the use of dialogue cards created exclusively for the Interfaith Table Talk, which contain thought provoking questions about the broad themes present in nearly all faith traditions and worldviews.
During the meal and conversation, dialogue participants listen to each other as each person answers the question on their dialogue card. Guests are required to listen to each other without interrupting, questioning or commenting on what is being said. During this structured part of the event, people speak only when it is their turn to speak. Mostly guests listen to each other. By the end of the event, deep connections are forged and friendships have begun!
The date for the upcoming Table Talk is TBA. Additional information on the Project as a whole can be found here: http://www.amazingfaithsproject.org/
