Course Description

We are blessed to be living in the most religiously diverse society in human history. Respect for and appreciation of various religious identities, perceptions, and views should be able to be expressed freely and comfortably. The climate today in our country challenges these freedoms. In this course, a number of Imams, rabbis, and pastors will explore both commonalities and differences in their traditions. The goal of the course is to demonstrate how diversity does enable humans to build authentic relationships, learn about each other, and participate in common action in community despite our differences. Students will learn about the essential beliefs and practices of these Abrahamic faiths and how they are scripturally connected. Students will also learn models of how diverse traditions can work together practically in the community. • Lecture (plus questions); Facilitated discussion.
