Semester's Final Sustained Interfaith Dialogue to be April 16
04.12.13 |
Lebanon Valley College presents the final Sustained Interfaith Dialogue of the semester Tuesday, April 16, at 11 a.m. in the Miller Chapel Lobby. Conversations are free and open to the public.

The purpose of the last session is to give the panelists and audience members time to reflect on and process some of the issues they talked about throughout the semester. Topics have included race, science, and spirituality.

"We want them to make connections that will help everyone better understand the dynamics and complexity of living in a pluralistic society," said Dr. Matthew Sayers, assistant professor of religion at LVC. "My hope is that students and community members will make connections between different themes and push the conversation in interesting directions."

Respondents throughout the semester have included six members of the Protestant, Catholic, Jewish, Hindu, Buddhist, and Muslim communities.

"I think exposure to such exchanges is the key to gaining better understanding of each other. We must move beyond the niceties and get to substantive exchange between persons of different perspectives," Sayers said.

Pizza is provided to attendees. Community members are asked to register by calling 717-867-3135 or by emailing nsmith@lvc.edu.

Sustained Dialogues are conducted at colleges and universities across the United States. The dialogues at LVC are designed to enhance religious literacy and further the mission of the college "to enable our students to become people of broad vision" and "to enhance their sensitivity to and appreciation of differences among human beings."
