Lebanon Valley College Sustained Interfaith Dialogue Series Continues
02.21.13 |
Lebanon Valley College continues its series of Sustained Interfaith Dialogue sessions Tuesday, February 26 at 11 a.m. in the lobby of Miller Chapel. Conversations are free and open to the public and will focus on a discussion of science in relation to a variety of faith communities

Dr. Matthew Sayers, assistant professor of religion at LVC, will lead the discussion by asking the panelist a question, allowing each one to reply, and then allowing a response to the other panelists' answers. Sayers will then open the discussion to attendees where they can add their own input and comments or ask the panelists questions.

"In modern day America, religion is becoming increasingly optional, while science is not. They are viewed most often as alternatives but the two systems of thought both try to make sense of the world; they just start with different assumptions. Religion's role in the public sphere is changing," Sayers said of the connection between faith and science.

The panel of representatives will involve six members of the Protestant, Catholic, Jewish, Hindu, Buddhist, and Muslim communities.

"Religion is connected with so many topics and we don't often talk about how they are related. Exposure to different views besides what students have grown up with will help them to identify differences and similarities in their way of thinking. We live in a world where people are increasingly diverse," Sayers said.

A free pizza lunch is provided to all who 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."
