Ethical Society Hosts Interfaith Poetry Reading 31 May , 2011

On Saturday night, a crowd of all ages and various faiths gathered in the auditorium at the Ethical Society of St. Louis for “An Interfaith Poetry Reading.”

Six poets of the Christian, Islamic and Jewish faiths read their original work, while Rabbi James Stone Goodman performed with his band.

“These poets are similar: they’re focused on being reverent with each other’s traditions,” Howard Schwartz, one of the poets and an event organizer, said. “The whole point of this reading is to show respect for other religions.”

Kathy Kammien, the membership and program director at the Ethical Society, welcomed the crowd.
