We live in an increasingly multi-faith world, country, state, and community. Children, youth, and adults live and work with peers from many different religious traditions. Minority religions in America have always had to teach about Christianity. Today, all religions have to teach about other religions and confront the cognitive and emotional dissonance of people of different faith traditions living together. We need to know about our neighbors’ faiths as part of faith formation. As a step in that direction, the Saint Paul Interfaith Network, in cooperation with Luther Seminary, offers the following opportunity.

Join us for a panel discussion – with brief presentations! – from four local educators who work closely with their communities of faith on this topic. This will be an interactive and conversational event, and we welcome people who are new to the topic as well as those who have long done work in it. The panelists are Dr. Jeffrey Schein (Jewish), Rev. Jane Buckley Farlee (Christian), Dr. Ned Mohan (Hindu), and Nadifa Osman (Muslim). The moderator for the conversation is Dr. Mary Hess, Professor of Educational Leadership, Luther Seminary.

This event is free and open to the public. Though lunch is not offered, light refreshments, coffee, tea, and water are.

Please share this with whomever you believe would be interested.
