Spiritual Other/Spiritual Self: Models of Transformative Interfaith Work - Surjit Singh Lecture 2013

Thursday, February 21, 2013 - 7:00pm

Jennifer Howe Peace (Ph.D. '05)
Assistant Professor of Interfaith Studies, Andover Newton Theological School (ANTS) and Director of CIRCLE (Center fo Interreligious and Communal Leadership Education)

People of diverse religious backgrounds encounter each other daily in coffee shops, hospitals, classrooms, and around the dinner table. What might these encounters teach us about ourselves, our neighbors, or about God? Drawing on stories from My Neighbor’s Faith (Orbis, 2012), this year's Singh Lecture will explore what these encounters tell us about the nature of transformative interfaith work today.

Responses will be given by Charles Gibbs (Executive Director, United Religions Initiative) and Rebecca Parker (President, Starr King School for the Ministry) with a discussion moderated by Judith Berling (Professor of Chinese and Comparative Religions, GTU). The will be a public reception before the lecture at 6:00PM in the Bade Museum across the Courtyard.

Empathy and the Evolution of Compassion: From Deep History to Infused Values

Wednesday, April 26, 2017 - 7:00pm

A CTNS Public Forum. This lecture contributes a theological perspective to recent heated public debates in psychology on the rejection of empathy as of key significance in the moral life.  In dialogue with philosopher Martha Nussbaum, Celia Deane-Drummond explores recent analysis of the deep history of the evolution of compassion in early hominids and argues for the importance of charity, understood in the classic, Thomistic, sense, as holding a central place for mercy and its relationship with superabundant compassion. Free and open to the public.
