Greetings Augsburg Students, Faculty, and Staff!
Are you interested in discussions concerning faith and interfaith dialogue? Are you curious about the various ways the term “calling” plays into the lives of people of differing faiths? If so, consider attending this thought-provoking event!
On Thursday, February 2nd, 2017 at 6:30 pm in Oren Gateway Center Room 100 Augsburg will be hosting “Calling in Today’s World: Multifaith Perspectives” an event aimed at discovering how and if different faiths share similar senses of calling as Christians do in their concept of vocation.
Three panelists from different faith backgrounds will come together to discuss the meaning of calling in their faiths, these panelists are Mark Berkson, Rabbi Amy Eilberg and Fardosa Hassan.
Mark Berkson is professor and chair in the Department of Religion at Hamline University. His work on Confucian and Daoist thought has appeared in numerous books and journals. His lecture series for the Great Courses, Cultivating Literacy for Religion, was released in 2012. His current project is Death, Immortality and the Afterlife: A Comparative Perspective.

Deeply involved in the work of peace and reconciliation, she is the author of From Enemy to Friend: Jewish Wisdom and the Pursuit of Peace (Orbis Books, 2014).
Fardosa Hassan is Muslim Student Program Associate at Augsburg College. She also works as the Interfaith Youth Connection Program Coordinator at Interfaith Action of Greater Saint Paul.
The event will be moderated by Martha Stortz, the Bernhard M. Christensen Professor of Religion and Vocation at Augsburg College.
