See Parliament Trustee Fr. John Pawlikowski Present on Holocaust at "Encountering the Stranger" Symposium this June

The Aspen, Colorado JCC is hosting a symposium this June to advance interfaith dialogue through four-days of programs. Parliament Trustee Rev. Dr. John Pawlikowski, OSM, will present his program entitled Confronting Social Hatred Today: Reflections in Light of the Holocaust.

Organizers of the event explain the event theme by pointing to the words of editors John K. Roth and Leonard Grob, in their book Encountering the Stranger: 

'Authentic dialogue must aim to overcome existential mistrust of the stranger.' Rather, contributors to their book seek 'fundamental change' which may include 'revising their own tradition’s assumptions and teaching regarding ‘the other.’  

An illustrious gathering of renowned scholars, clergy, artists and theologians, representing the Abrahamic traditions, will examine this phenomenon in terms of past, present and future encounters with the 'stranger.' In addition to the editors, presenters will include several contributors to their book. All are welcome to join for this inspiring symposium which seeks to give new meaning to interfaith dialogue. The entire event is free and open to the public.
