Tonight: Interfaith Open Table meeting: Marriage Equality: What is Next?


We are fortunate in Hawaii to have a strong interfaith community that can come together to discuss issues that both unify and divide opinion and belief. Tonight the Interfaith Open Table has scheduled a meeting, open to all, that hopes to look forward on the issues still facing acceptance of LGBT rights.

The venue is the hall at Harris United Methodist Church (see below). There’s plenty of parking and it’s near town and public transit.

From the emailed announcement:


Interfaith Open Table

Tuesday, March 15, 2016
7:00 p.m.
Harris United Methodist Church
Corner of Vineyard and Nu‘uanu

Marriage Equality: What is Next?

Br. Jack Isbell, Discussion Leader

Panel participants:

Gene Corpuz, President/Dignity Honolulu
Rev. Laura Starre Emerson, Pastor, Orthodox Catholic Church of America
Margaret Mann, Counselor/Author
Kathryn Xian, Executive Director, The Pacific Alliance to Stop Slavery

The LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bi-sexual, Transgendered, and Questioning Persons) have come a long way in working for equality and social acceptance. This evening's panel discussion, followed by conversation with the assembly present, will help us understand the continuing social needs, civil rights, and acceptance of LGBTQ persons.

Learning to listen and ponder, helps us understand the needs of the LGBTQ community.
