Stony Point Center hosted the Presbyterian Church (USA) General Assembly Committee on Ecumenical and Interreligious Relations (GACEIR) this past week. We were excited to hear both that this committee was meeting to develop a stance on interfaith relations and that they would be meeting here at Stony Point Center. SPC is home to the Community of Living Traditions, a group of multifaith residents who work and learn together and support the work of SPC. A part of that work this past week was hosting GACEIR including kicking off their time together with a worship service. That brought forward a time of discussion of what it means to worship together. All of this was also happening during the Jewish festival of Sukkot. So many exciting things happen here that we were very excited to host GACEIR.

The PC(USA) has posted a few articles about their time here:
