Events in April 2013

April 2&9: Compassionate Hospitality: a taste of Asian traditions at the SoL Center, University Presbyterian Church, 300 Bushnell. $35 includes supper. Registration required: call 210-732-9927. Whether we consider the Hindu tradition of “Namaste,” respecting the divine in the other, compassionate Buddhism with its emphasis on service, the outpouring of Sikh generosity in meals shared with all, or Christian origins from Jesus, a west Asian filled with the hospitality of that continent, much can be learned sitting at round tables, listening and sharing a meal with each other. Explore the Charter for Compassion and build on successful interfaith dialogues. Part of the 2013 Pilgramage of Compassion.

April 7: The second annual San Antonio Walk Against Genocide, at Barshop Jewish Community Center, Wurzbach & Military, 2-4 pm.

We'll be there with the Charter for Compassion for you to sign!
