Navigating Religious Difference, Whether You're Religious or Not [PAST EVENT]
Time & Location
About the Event
As the saying goes: never talk about politics or religion. That's because these convictions tend to run deep and make sweeping claims. But is it the content of these convictions that leads to misunderstanding and conflict? Or is it the mindset that one brings to these touchy topics? This seminar will provide a framework for considering religious difference in a way that is conducive to constructive conversations, while maintaining one's own personal integrity.
