Rabbi Dr. Laura Duhan Kaplan, Interim Director, Iona Pacific Inter-religious Centre, Vancouver School of Theology.
Week of July 20 to 24
8:30AM to 11:30AM
Canada today practices “inclusive secularism,” welcoming multiple religious traditions into the public sphere. How should ministers working in Indigenous contexts, rooted in particular traditions, and confronting a history of oppression, participate in pluralism? Participants will explore answers, as together we examine different models of inter-faith connection, including common theological ground, awareness of social complexity, shared study of sacred text and story, and shared social action.
This course meets the requirement for the M.Div. degree program but is open to everyone.
