This Sunday, April 19, the Interfaith Dialogues class welcomes as guest speaker Khalid Griggs, Imam of the Community Mosque of Winston-Salem, and Associate Chaplain for Muslim Life at Wake Forest University. Imam Griggs will address a number of questions that the class members have submitted to him. You are invited to come learn with us at 9:45 a.m. in Room 202 Wingate Hall, adjacent to Wait Chapel.
An active participant in matters of faith, justice, and community, Imam Griggs is well known and respected not only at home in Winston-Salem and Forsyth County, but also around the country and abroad as a Human Rights and Prison Reform Activist. He serves on the Board of Guidance of Interfaith Winston-Salem, and is a founding member of NC Muslims for Social Justice. Imam Griggs is a member of the Board of Trustees of the Parliament of the World’s Religions based in Chicago, and chairs the Board of the Islamic Circle of North America Council for Social Justice.
In recent years, this class has enjoyed fellowship meals with Imam Griggs and members of the Community Mosque at both the Mosque and at WFBC. They look forward to sharing more time together in a variety of ways that will benefit our community.
