Interfaith Table

Every other month, students come together for a facilitated conversation that crosses boundaries of faith, religion, spirituality, and identity. In the listening and the sharing,
. . . we venture beyond the comfort of the familiar.
. . . we honor difference and create space for growth.
. . . we chart new courses through the landscape of our lives.

Interfaith Table focusing on Hinduism


Past Interfaith Tables have focused on the following religious traditions and themes: Hinduism, Islam, Judaism, Christianity, Buddhism, the Baha’i Faith, Atheist/Questioning, Coming from an Interfaith Family, Experiencing Meditation, Being Muslim in the West, and Experiencing Religion while Studying Abroad. If you have an idea for a future Interfaith Table, please share it with us!

Interfaith Tables frequently use the “reflecting team” format, which is described in an article about an interfaith conversation that was held as part of Open to the World: Bates Celebrates Unbounded Learning in the Fall of 2011.
