Friends in Faith – An iACT Luncheon on Buddhism

11:30 - 1:00 on Thursday, February 27, 2020

Exploring Buddhism

Dear Friends,  

iACT invites you to explore Buddhism with us at the ninth annual Friends in Faith Luncheon on February 27, 2020 from 11:30 – 1:00 pm at Chez Zee American Bistro. This luncheon is specifically for the Faith Leaders of Central Texas as a gift to nourish and support their ministry, and to give them the chance to build relationships with other faith leaders in our community. If you are a clergy member/faith leader please RSVP here or you can call 512-386-9145 x302 to reserve your seat at the luncheon

This year we will explore Buddhism. A panel of Buddhist monks and practitioners from the Austin Buddhist community will share their wisdom and give us a deeper understanding of Buddhism. Our luncheon speakers will be:

  • Tim Kroll – Austin Zen Center
  • Sergio Madrigal – Dharmata Sangha of Austin
  • Venerable Jui Je – Xiang Yun Temple
  • Lynette Melnar – Austin Shambhala Center
  • Bikkhu Cintata Dinsmore – Sitagu Buddha VIhara

We invite you to broaden our circle of interfaith friendships, and encourage you to bring a friend who has never attended an iACT event before. We count on your voice to help us spread the word: we are better together and we need each other! Your presence will inspire our ongoing commitment to connecting Austin’s diverse faith communities and to promote healthy interfaith relationships.

The Friends in Faith Luncheon is Thursday, February 27, 2020 from 11:30 – 1:00 pm in Chez Zee’s gallery, located at 5406 Balcones Dr., Austin, TX 78731.

We are thankful for the support of Sharon Watkins, owner of Chez Zee American Bistro, who has generously donated the entire cost of the meal to support iACT and its mission of cultivating peace and respect.

In gratitude for your friendship and the gifts you share with our community,

Simone Talma Flowers
Executive Director, iACT
