Church in Longwood to Host

Interfaith Religious-Liberty Event

The Markham Woods Church of Seventh-day Adventists (505 Markham Woods Road, Longwood, FL 32779) is inviting the public to a religious-liberty event on Saturday, January 8, at 2:00 pm. Topic for the event is: “What Current Religious-Liberty Issues Are of Greatest Concern to You?” That question will be answered by five diverse presenters, who will each give a brief presentation highlighting the two greatest concerns faced by the faith/worldview the respective speakers represent. Speakers/panelists will be: Rev. Dr. James Morris, Christian; David Williamson, Humanist; Ben Friedman, Jewish; Imam Muhammad Musri, Muslim; and Navtej Khalsa, Sikh. After their presentations, the speakers will take part in a panel discussion, moderated by Pastor James Coffin, former Pastor at Markham Woods Church and for the past 10 years Executive Director of the Interfaith Council of Central Florida. The event is a collaborative effort between the host congregation, the Interfaith Council and the Central Florida Commission on Religious Freedom. The event is free, and all are invited. Reservations are not required. Phone 321-228-4599 for more information. IMPORTANT: This event has been postponed because of the Omicron surge. It will NOT be January 8. It’s now tentatively scheduled for March 5 at 2:00 pm. But even the new date is subject to the vagaries of the pandemic! Check here a day or two before March 5.
