History
SPIN began in 2005 with monthly lunch meetings of clergy and lay leaders from various traditions. The first public event, a six-session interfaith learning series, was held in 2006. Since then, SPIN continues the monthly midday dialogues while still growing other program offerings. In 2012, SPIN started the Healing Minnesota Stories initiative, an effort to create understanding and healing between people of faith and Minnesota’s American Indian people.
