Spiritual Enrichment through Interfaith Engagement

Spiritual Enrichment through Interfaith Engagement
Dinner dialogues for students
February 9, February 16, March 23, and April 6 from 5:30 to 7:00 PM
Quad 268, Saint John’s University 

In this series of four dialogues over dinner, Christian scholars from the CSB/SJU community will discuss how their understanding and practice of Christian faith, as well as the understanding and practice of other Christians, has been enriched through engagement with other religions. They will welcome questions and observations that students may have about these religions, about the relationship of Christianity to them, and about whatever students want to discuss regarding interfaith relations. 

The dinners will be free for all participants, compliments of the Jay Phillips Center for Interfaith Learning.  Each dinner will be limited to eleven students and the featured scholar for that evening.  Students may register for one or more of these dinners.  Below is the information about each of them, along with a link to the registration form for each.
