Tuesday, October 27, 2015, 7:00 p.m.
Shelton Auditorium, Christian Theological Seminary
With countless episodes of conflict and violence between Jews, Muslims, and Christians making headlines around the world, what positive examples of mutual support and collaboration can model an alternative, hopeful vision? Founded in 2006, the Tri-Faith Initiative of Omaha, Nebraska, is a joint project of local Jewish, Muslim, and Christian congregations sharing a main campus and a commitment to dialogue and community engagement. Our second session in this year’s Religion and World Civilization Seminar Series will feature two leaders of the Initiative sharing their reflections on their work to overcome religious, cultural, and racial divisions in their interfaith work together.
