This program is based on the conviction that knowing and befriending people across lines of religious difference is a key to interfaith understanding and a crucial component of peacemaking in our religiously plural world. Research indicates that people who befriend one person of a different religion tend to become more open toward people of all religious traditions. The program will include a moderator and a panel of college students who have spent a semester engaging in interfaith dialogue and shared service with people from a variety of religious traditions. Most of the students were raised in conservative, evangelical settings. Panel members will describe their experience in interfaith relationship-building and engage in Q&A with attendees.
