Description

The God Squad

Faith, Food, Friday - featuring "The God Squad" - is a project of The Village Square, devoted to building community across divides.

This is a special crossover event with our series Local Color: Gathering across differences in color, creed and ideology.


Jackie Robinson would be 100 next week. On April 15, 1947 Jackie Robinson stepped onto Ebbes Field as a Brooklyn Dodger. He had broken the color barrier in a sport that has been always segregated. In celebration of the 100th year of his birth, we'll talk about issues swirling in the sports world around race and we'll consider the progress made through sports.

Facilitating the conversation is Rabbi Jack Romberg of Temple Israel.

MENU:

Pizza - cheese or veggies

Green salad

Dessert




Faith, Food, Friday is $8 if you register through the Tuesday ahead of the program ($10 after), or it's free if you’d like to bring your own lunch or not eat. We offer online payment as a courtesy, but note that there is an additional fee when paying online.



The God Squad


Meet the God Squad, the brains behind our series “Faith, Food, Friday: Improbable conversations for people of faith and no faith at all (because talking politics wasn’t hard enough). Whoever you are, whatever your beliefs, bring an open mind, an open heart (and an empty stomach) for a continuing conversation that makes it safe to bring your beliefs to the public square - just as you are. We hope you'll join us as we explore what happens when people of good will who might disagree cross each others' thresholds and break a little bread together.


From left to right: Rev. Josh Hall, First Baptist Church; Father Tim Holeda, Co-Cathedral of St. Thomas More; Pastor Darrick McGhee of Bible Based Church; Betsy Ouellette Zierden of Good Samaritan United Methodist Church; and Rabbi Jack Romberg of Temple Israel.
