The Planner On… Navigating Multifaith Events

Not everyone who attends our events is comfortable being around alcohol; this we know. But there are many individuals who enjoy having a glass of wine while networking with their peers. We seek balance by providing an opportunity to purchase drinks, but we don’t supply them.

The same concept applies to receptions, morning devotion and other networking opportunities. These aren’t forced events, but optional opportunities for those who are comfortable to engage at their leisure.

How are you being mindful of respecting different faiths at your events? What feedback do you have for our events? Share with us on Twitter, @_connectfaith.
