Workshop – Engaging Religious Difference

Austin Presbyterian Seminary

Engaging Religious Difference

November 20-21, 2015

Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary, McCord Community Center

100 East 27th Street, Austin, 78705

Registration will begin at 9:00 am

Cost: $150/person (meals and lodging included); $75 (meals only)

During this two-day workshop participants will learn about power dynamics in interfaith relationships. Specifically, we will start by acknowledging that in this culture Christians always come to the table with more power and privilege. We will also unearth a host of other factors that influence power dynamics, such as gender, race and economic status.

The aim is to shine light on often unexamined inequalities operating in interfaith relationships so that we can enter into more mutual, life-giving relationship with each other.

Aimed at clergy, church leaders, and activists, this workshop will blend lectures, group discussions and experiential exercises with multimedia technologies.

Led by Dr. Christine Hong and Dr. Tiffany Puett
