Harnessing our Collective Strength through Interreligious Literacy

February 29 @ 5:30 pm - 9:00 pm

 

Interreligious literacy can be a means to promote greater religious understanding and appreciation in the context of our pluralistic democracy. Ideally, by learning about and engaging with the diverse traditions that make up our society, we learn to respect one another, thereby reducing fear, prejudice, discrimination and misunderstanding. In doing so, we may also enhance our own ethical worldview and advance social cohesion. 

Social sectors like Health Care, Education, Law Enforcement, Social Action and Chaplaincy bring people together from a variety of religious and cultural backgrounds. Those who work in and interact with these sectors benefit from the fruits of interreligious literacy when it’s effective at empowering people to be true to their identities and equipping them to productively engage with diverse perspectives. 

This program is intended to help participants increase their interreligious knowledge and to experience, to reflect, and to generate ideas for applying this new learning in their own contexts.

The evening includes a pre-program reception.
