I joined WIN specifically for the seasonal programs. They are educational and provocative. Last month I brought three friends as guests and they found the speakers as enjoyable as I did. I’m proud to be a member of this important group and I enthusiastically support its mission. As a member of a minority religious group myself (Jewish), I am therefore more aware of ignorance and false assumptions prevalent in our society. I believe we all have a mission to educate others—and ourselves—to confront false assumptions wherever they exist.
I joined WIN in 2017 and I’m a loyal fan. Though I grew up with Baptist and Methodist roots, I’m now very active in the Unitarian Universalist Church in Sarasota. I’m also active in the Anti-Racism Working Group, among numerous other social-justice organizations. Despite these commitments, WIN remains firmly fixed on my busy schedule. I love the interfaith conversations at my Common Table. I’m also a member of WIN’s Leadership Circle, helping us keep connected to various community groups and projects.
A friend asked me to join WIN. I did and found interesting, caring people to share ideas about life with. I also have an opportunity to share my thoughts with some amazing friends, who are eager to learn more about my Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.
“I made friends with people I would never have met and am richer for it.”
"It was comforting to hear other women expressing doubts about their own religious teachings."
"I gained a whole new perspective on Muslims and how their customs vary in different countries."
"I loved the diversity in our group and am surprised at how much I learned."
