Receptive Reverence

Sunday, July 14, 2019

We live in a complex, multicultural world that encompasses many spiritual traditions and faiths. We are often confronted with the question of how to raise children to be open to new ideas and experiences in their broader community while continuing to guide them with values that are important to our own families and faith traditions. How do we teach our children and grandchildren to have respect for other faith traditions and to engage in an interfaith dialogue? How do we teach our selves to do so?

The second session in this multi-session series meets Sunday, July 14 from 11:00 a.m. -12:15 p.m. in the Lewis and Vance Rooms. Speakers are Dr. Bill Solomonson and a teenager from Zen Buddhist Temple of Ann Arbor, who will each talk about Buddhism from their own perspectives.

Optional Background Reading - Holy Envy: Finding God in the Faith of Others by Barbara Brown Taylor. Available in the Church Office for $18.
