Posted by on Jun 11, 2014 in Uncategorized | Comments Off

When Compassion Meets Passion: The Programs of JustFaith

The program will be presented by graduates of the renowned JustFaith initiative who have seen its impact and value – coming to know how it “forms, informs and transforms people of faith by offering programs and resources that sustain them in their compassionate commitment to build a more just and peaceful world.”  If you have wondered about what JustFaith is, or if you’ve never heard of JustFaith, this is a wonderful opportunity to learn about the different programs… and hopefully choose to participate in one of the courses being offered in the near future.

All faith communities who are looking for small group programs for their members should send representatives to this meeting to learn of  the many programs within the JustFaith curriculum.

The objective of One Huntsville is to provide an opportunity to meet across religious, racial and cultural segments, exchange information and become informed via a good program.
