“Religion and Violence”
Thursday, February 8th 6:30-8:30pm
Join the Interfaith Scholars and Interfaith @ Cedar Commons team for a challenging discussion around this important topic. Free dinner will be provided!
*How and why have religious texts and doctrines been used to fuel and justify violence? Are there other ways to understand those texts?
*What are other root causes of violence, if religion isn’t necessarily the root?
*How can faith communities be a force of non-violence?
SPEAKERS: Interfaith Fellow Wendy Goldberg and Professor Maheen Zaman.
