Understanding Interfaith Dilemmas, Spring 2011
What do you do if a parishioner asks you to host an interfaith service in your church? How do you make your voice heard in the public square alongside your religious neighbors from different faith traditions? What does your faith teach you about authentic engagement with the religious “other?” In this course we will explore the challenges and opportunities created by the reality of living in an interfaith world. Students will draw on the resources of their own faith tradition to develop a personal foundation for their engagement in interfaith dialogue and action. In addition, through analyzing case studies students will build problem-solving skills for tackling interfaith dilemmas that may arise in the personal, professional and civic arenas. Limit: 25. This course is an Interfaith Engagement integrative catalyst.
