Wichita’s three major universities are cooperating with Global Faith In Action for a citywide discussion about faith.

This marks the fourth year Global Faith in Action of Wichita has hosted the event, which this year will be from 6:30 to 9 p.m. on Nov. 21. A flier on the event describes Dinner Dialogues as bringing “people of all faiths and no faith together for fellowship and friendship.”

A news release from Global Faith said the goal is bringing people together to foster community action. The event will happen during Spiritual Wellness Week.

This is how it works: On the evening of Nov. 21, several people across the city will open their homes for eight to 10 guests to attend a dinner. From that event, group organizers are hoping people of all cultures and traditions will discuss their faith – in particular students at Wichita State University, Newman University and Friends University.

“Students have an advantage, going to school in an urban setting, to get plugged in to their community,” Chandler Williams, chair of Spiritual Wellness Week, said in a statement. “Interfaith dinner dialogues are a catalyst for students to engage in their community and make a positive impact.”

In past years, more than 120 people have attended Wichita’s Dinner Dialogues.

People are encouraged to register no later than Monday. The event is free.
