Thursday Night Interfaith Suppers

Celebrating 44 Years of Interfaith Dialogue in the Brown Community

The Thursday Night Interfaith Supper program (TNS) is one of the key interfaith inititatives of the Office of the Chaplains and Religious Life. The 2010-2011 academic year marks TNS's 44th year! The dinners are a weekly gathering of anywhere between 25 to 40 students, faculty, and staff, held in the home of the Chaplain of the University. Gathering most Thursday nights of each semester, the evening comprises dinner and conversation with invited speakers who discuss how the life of the spirit guides their professional and personal lives. Those who attend represent the full breadth of the Brown community as well as a wide range of religious, faith, spiritual, and ethical perspectives. Thus, TNS has been a place for delicious food, inspiring speakers, respectful community, and invigorating conversation on matters of interfaith dialogue and spirituality. All are truly welcome!

Thursday Night Supper is free and open to the community. Sign-up for the Thursday Night Supper listserv with Student Coordinators Benjamin_Becker@brown.edu, Lauren_Rouse@brown.edu, or Sana_Parvaiz_Siddiq@brown.edu.

Suppers begin at 5:30 p.m. and end by 7:00 p.m.
