Interfaith minister speaks at Avid Reader on May 1

Interfaith minister Steven Greenebaum will be at The Avid Reader, 617 Second St. in downtown Davis, at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, May 1, to discuss his new book, “The Interfaith Alternative.”

In “The Interfaith Alternative,” Greenebaum writes about celebrating each other without fear of losing our own identity. He illuminates the path to creating a nurturing spiritual community that honors and includes all religious languages. In doing so, he demonstrates that through coming together in a mutually supportive environment we can concentrate on our shared desire to remake the world into a compassionate, loving place, a news release said.

Widely praised by reviewers, “The Interfaith Alternative” is, as Bill McKibben has described it, “a timely and useful challenge to all people of faith.”

Greenebaum has master’s degrees in mythology, music and pastoral studies. Beyond teaching mythology and directing choirs, he worked with Common Cause, and was the founder/executive director of Citizens for Environmental Responsibility. His articles calling for social justice have been published in The Seattle Times and The Everett Herald, as well as The Northwest Asian Weekly.
