The Greater Pittsburgh Interfaith Coalition (GPIC) was formed to build bridges of trust, understanding, cooperation and respect, especially at the neighborhood level, in the Greater Pittsburgh region. GPIC’s mission is to serve as a model of interfaith harmony. Committee members represent various faiths and organizations that have a strong belief in interfaith dialogue. On Sunday, October 25, they will present an inter-faith panel discussion, “Exploring Compassion Through Multi-faith Lenses” at Carlow University.

The discussion will explore the roots of compassion across faith traditions. The panel will have representatives from the Christian, Jewish, Islamic, Buddhist and Hindu Religions. Speakers include Rev. David Keller, United Methodist Church; Rabbi Jamie Gibson, Temple Sinai Pittsburgh; Kazim Reza, Consultant for Muslim Organizations; and Sanjay Mehta, General Secretary of the World Hindu Council of America.

This event is free and open to the public and refreshments will be served. Registration is optional, but appreciated! You can register online here.
