We are thrilled to host the Rev. Daryl Horton and Rabbi Neil Blumofe, who will discuss their "Witness on Wheels" initiative and what they have learned so far in their travels across America. You may remember them as our special guests during a recent Friday evening Zoom service!
For the last two summers, the two religious leaders have spent a week traveling together, visiting historical sites significant to each other's communities. Sites have included the Holocaust Museum in Houston, the National Civil Rights Museum in Memphis and an African burial ground in New York.
Reverend Horton is the youth pastor at Mt. Zion Baptist Church in East Austin, and Rabbi Blumofe is the senior rabbi at Congregation Agudas Achim in Northwest Hills. They became friends while serving together on the board of the Interfaith Action of Central Texas (IACT). Their "Witness on Wheels" idea grew out of a desire to model the mission of IACT: "to build healthy relationships between the faith communities of Central Texas."
