Recently the Islamic Center of Boulder hosted an Interfaith event in partnership with the Boulder Mormon church. The Daily Camera, a local news publication covering Boulder Colorado, published a great piece about the event and its connection with the Dead Sea Scrolls exhibit currently on display at the Museum of Nature and Science.
Before the event the Boulder Atonement Lutheran Church hosted an interfaith dinner which was attended by a number of Christian, Muslim, and Jewish leaders.

With his car windows almost entirely blocked and every inch of space stuffed with plastic bags, Travis, a volunteer from “Keep Colorado Warm,” happily took on the challenge of stuffing more in.
Recently, the Boulder Stake relief society came together to donate an impressive amount of winter clothing to the IMPACT program which collects badly-needed items to protect the needy from Colorado winters. When Travis showed up in his small hatchback, he realized he may have underestimated the generosity of these women.
“He was a bit surprised by the size of our donation,” said Wendy Ericson, a member of the Boulder Stake. “Miraculously, he was able to stuff all 18 bags full of winter clothing into his little hatchback. … He was very gracious and thrilled to receive it.”
More than 430 items were donated, including 164 coats, 107 hats and 66 pairs of gloves. One sister even sewed several hoodies herself for the cause.
The sisters sorted all the items, something that made IMPACT “especially happy” for, and they enjoyed hot chocolate and donuts along with good company.
“It was a labor of love,” Ericson said. “I was so touched by the love and generosity of the sisters and the warmth it will bring to others.”
