Interfaith at Augsburg invites you to join in reflecting upon how various religious and secular traditions call for our engagement in loving and serving the neighbor, working for healing, justice, peace and mercy, and the care of creation in a divided and often distrustful nation and world.

Imam Makram El-Amin, Masjid An-Nur in Minneapolis
Professor Lori Brandt Hale, chair of Augsburg University’s Department of Religion and Philosophy
