As future faith leaders how can we create spaces of true belonging and real connection?
Register to attend the Annual Summer Interfaith Forum: Together for a Beloved Community on Friday, July 8 from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm ET. This Forum is co-sponsored by Union’s Thích Nhất Hạnh Program for Engaged Buddhism.
We live in a country that is rich in diversity and intersectionality, necessitating a dialogue about how to establish spaces of faith where people can believe in and belong to themselves, as well as have a sense of connection to a larger humanity. We believe religious communities, faith leaders and those on a spiritual journey can play a central role by embodying their spiritual values in creating a more just, harmonious, and peaceful world.
On July 8th, 2022, we will host future leaders in their twenties and thirties to explore ways we can cultivate spaces where people feel seen, heard, and valued. How might we as people of faith, support individuals and communities connected to their religious and spiritual identities, to amplify their voice, vision, and public leadership?
We are seeking a diversity of participants in their twenties and thirties. Individuals may define as those who lead publicly through a religious or spiritual voice or those who lead publicly with a secular voice and have a strong private religious and/or spiritual practice.
For the safety of everyone, we require that you be fully vaccinated, symptom-free in order to attend the service in person.
