Multi-faith round table returning to Auburn library


AUBURN — The Auburn Public Library has announced the return of the Multi-Faith Round Table. The next discussion takes place at 12:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 3, at the library as local clergy share their faith’s take on various religious interpretations and application to today’s modern times.

The participating clergy also serve as chaplains for the Auburn Police Department and include Rabbi Sruli Dresdner of Temple Shalom, Pastor Roger Cousineau of East Auburn Baptist Church, the Rev. Dr. Jody Cohen Hayashida of First Universalist Church in New Auburn and Pastor Richard Waller of the Auburn Church of the Nazarene.

“It was fascinating to hear the different points of view coming from the different faith traditions,” says Rabbi Dresdner. “I am delighted that we will all be together again in scholarship and fellowship.”

The audience will have an opportunity to ask questions, although there may not be time for all inquiries.

The October discussion will be followed by a monthly discussion on Nov. 7 and Dec. 5. All programs take place from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. at the library, 49 Spring St.
