Colorado Council of Churches invites the community to celebrate the kick-off of the Faithful Thursdays series on Jan. 7th the Colorado State Capitol! The group will meet every other Thursday after Jan. 7, 2020.
When: Tuesday, Jan. 7, 2020 (this is the only time we'll meet on a Tuesday), 12 p.m. to 1 p.m.
Where: Colorado State Capitol, 200 E. Colfax Avenue, Denver, CO 80203.
Last year, we gathered as people of faith, we’re committed forward a unifying narrative that uplifts our common faith call to build human dignity in Colorado. This legislative session, let's come together again to advance a moral economy, equity, and the eradication of racism. We called that public witness "Faithful Tuesdays." This year, we will convene every other week on Thursdays.
Faithful Thursdays is a diverse coalition of leaders, organizations and community members who are committed to adding a deeper, moral dimension to the public policy-making process in Colorado.
We will hold multi-faith events at the Colorado State Capitol throughout the 2020 legislative session. Some of these events may feature specific legislation, while other events may focus on forwarding a shared narrative of justice, love, healing, reconciliation, and care for the other.
After the Faithful Thursdays Kickoff on January 7th, please join us for a Langar meal hosted by the Colorado Sikh community. The free meal will be at First Baptist Church, which is located at 1373 Grant Street, Denver, CO, 80203, across the street from the Colorado State Capitol.
