News headlines and social media posts show the U.S. a divided nation, and religion is one of the fault lines. The divisions surface between practitioners of different religious traditions, within religious traditions, and between the religious and non-religious. One way to heal these rifts is equipping ourselves to tell our own stories and learn to listen to the stories of others with clarity, charity, and hospitality. This conference will provide training in, and a forum for, storytelling and story-listening across differences in core commitments. Students from all perspectives and institutions are invited to attend and to refine their skills in dialogue on their campuses and in their wider communities.
Supported by a generous grant from the Interfaith Youth Core.
