On June 10th The Buddhist Temple of Chicago welcomed other members and friends of Treasures of Uptown into their home for Faith: Alive in Action, a discussion of ways in which social service is informed by our faiths and philosophies.
Our panelists were (from left to right) Serena Chen Low from Apna Ghar, Rev. Jean Darling from 2 Li'l Fishes, and Carol Goldbaum from Ezra Multi-Service Center. Panelists spoke about the connection between their work and their faith and how those connections came about, then we broke into smaller discussion groups and did the same. Good conversation, good company, and some pretty good snacks too. Thanks to everyone who attended and a special thanks to our panelists!
