  Religious Pluralism  
(Administration)

Religion is the way that people derive meaning and order in their world. Even individuals who profess to be non-religious or religiously unaffiliated work out a system of thought and behavior for making sense of the big questions of life. Thus, our world is characterized by a vast religious diversity that impacts our public lives in ways that are simultaneously unifying and contentious.

This session explores religious pluralism as an encounter of commitments that actively seeks understanding across lines of difference. To quote Diana L. Eck, director of the Harvard University Pluralism Project, religious pluralism calls us to hold "our deepest differences, even our religious differences, not in isolation, but in relationship to one another." By the end of this session, participants will be better equipped to engage in the kind of religious dialogue that invites everyone to the table, even when everyone at the table may not agree with one another.
