Event description

Upcoming Faith Stories Symposium: Young Women of Faith

Every day we are bombarded with stories and images of racial and religious tension. What we rarely see and hear about are the stories of a small group of women in the Yarra Ranges who are working to create a culture of cohesion and harmony via connecting communities.  We believe that acceptance and respect come from understanding each other's values, beliefs and most importantly our similarities rather than differences.

We have run Faith Stories for three years now, each year having a different focus. Our themes have been: Abrahamic faiths, Eastern Faiths and this year we are showcasing Young Women of Faith. The symposium is a presentation of conversations and storytelling from a panel of young multicultural women faith leaders.

Faith Stories generates such a heartfelt response from the audience, you will have the opportunity to ask the most honest questions to each speaker. A person’s stereotypes about another’s faith practice causes division, rather than understanding. Are you ready to hear understanding? Are you ready to see the difference between culture and faith? Are you ready to open your heart?

It is our hope that these conversations will start a ripple effect of understanding that will spread and eventually be a catalyst to alleviate unfounded stereotypes hindering community cohesion.
