“Hot Topics & Hot Wings” Interfaith Panel Presentation, September 22, 2011

The Bahá’ís of Statesboro assisted in the preparation and promotion of the “Hot Topics & Hot Wings” Interfaith Panel Presentation, sponsored by the Multicultural Student Center, at Georgia Southern University, Russell Union Ballroom, 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm, September 22, 2011. Please click below for a description and photos of the event.

The interfaith panel consisted of representatives: Dr. Francys Johnson as moderator; Rabbi Kenneth Leitner of Congregation Agudath Achim for Judaism; Minister Jerry Johnson of GSU Baptist Collegiate Ministry for Protestantism; Reverend Brett Brannen of St. Matthew Catholic Church for Catholicism; Vice President Zaidia Dreid of the GSU Muslim Student Association for Muslims; and Mr. Hugh Adamson of the UK National Spiritual Assembly (former member) for Bahá’ís. These representatives engaged in a panel discussion with a moderator and an audience of 180 students and faculty—not bad for a rainy night in Georgia. Contemporary “hot topics” were covered while enjoying free hot wings! The purpose of the panel discussion was to promote mutual understanding and appreciation of diverse religions. Special thanks are extended to Rachida Toure, an African student, for taking photos of the event. This interfaith panel discussion exemplified two Bahá’í teachings: “Truth is one in all religions” and "Consort with the followers of all religions in a spirit of friendliness and fellowship" —Bahá’u’lláh.
