Understanding Interfaith, Spring 2014
What are the challenges and opportunities of living in the most religiously diverse nation in the world? What does your faith teach you about authentic engagement with the religious other? What do you need to know about interfaith dialogue?
The word interfaith (and its equivalents) includes a wide range of definitions, goals and outcomes. Focusing on the contemporary interfaith movement in the US, we will begin to unpack our understanding of “interfaith” by exploring its meaning personally, historically, theologically, and practically. Students will draw on the resources of their own faith tradition to develop a foundation for engagement in interfaith dialogue and action. Students will build knowledge and skills for interfaith engagement. Limit: 20.
