Next BIC Potluck to Focus on End of Life Issues

The Brookings Interfaith Council will next gather at 6:30pm on Thursday evening, February 12th, at the Brookings Islamic Center, 724 11th Avenue.

Join us as we gather to learn about end-of-life issues, particularly for those in our community who are not from the Christian majority. How do our Muslim, Hindu, Baha’i and Buddhist friends contemplate and prepare for this phase of life in our community? Does Brookings or our surrounding region provide reasonable and dignified services to our various religious communities for death/burial, hospice, or other needs? How can we assure our community meets the religious needs of everyone in this regard?

Please bring a potluck dish to pass, if you are able or just show up for the evening. All are welcome. Invite a friend. Please be aware that many in our interfaith community do not eat pork or may be vegetarian.
