#GenInterfaith: Claiming Complex Religious Labels

Room 605
Description: 
Few of us have singular religious identities. Most of us have extended interfaith families, are multiple religious practitioners, live in post-colonial environments with religious layering, and learn from and draw on the many religions that surround us. In #GenInterfaith, we are increasingly claiming complex, hybrid, intersectional religious, spiritual, and nonreligious labels, rather than conforming to traditional mono-faith labels. Those of us who bridge two or more religions in our own cultures, in our own families, in our own selves, practice daily interfaith bridge-building and peacemaking. In this session, participants will be inspired by interfaith identities expert Susan Katz Miller and have a chance to participate and reflect on their own complex identities.
