CONVERSATION PROJECT - In Good Faith: Exploring Religious Difference in Oregon

The Library Multicultural Arts & Events Program, in partnership with the University Foundation, is pleased to present an Oregon Humanities Conversation Project:

In Good Faith: Exploring Religious Difference in Oregon

Religion is a topic traditionally not discussed in mixed company. But what do we lose when we avoid exploring our religious differences? Oregon is among the states in the US where people are most likely to identify as religiously unaffiliated. Many Oregonians have spiritual practices that both align with and transcend institutional definitions. Others filter strongly held values through religious traditions and frameworks. Writer and former chaplain Elizabeth Harlan-Ferlo will lead participants in examining the tools we use to talk about religion without dismissing others' beliefs or flattening the beautiful and sometimes harrowing complexities of our experiences. At the host's request, this conversation may be customized to fit the specific needs of their community.
