Justice in a Multi-Faith World (April 2023)

Far from seeking to eradicate diverse worldviews, Jesus showed deep interest in building relationships with people who held different views of the world. In April, we will learn how inter-religious dialogue and relationships are essential for pursuing faith and justice. We will ponder questions like: What can the diversity of Christian traditions (or Christianities) teach us about the life of faith? What do translation, contextualization, and epistemological humility have to do with the work of justice?

Shirin Shafaie will be our webinar speaker. A filmmaker and biblical scholar based in Copenhagen, Dr. Shafaie received her PhD from the Department of Politics and International Studies at SOAS, University of London.
