ABOUT THE EVENT:
Much has changed in the last 20 years after 9/11 regarding interfaith, especially the new landscape of accepting religious diversity and the acceptance of the dignity of difference. We will discuss finding wisdom in other religions for self-understanding. This talk will include stories from my recent time spent in Indonesia, Singapore, UAE, India, and within the diversity of the USA.
