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.
Gaze at the stars and enjoy beautiful views of Mt. Tamalpais while walking the labyrinth, a contemplative exercise that focuses the mind and renews the spirit. Enjoy quiet string music by Daniel Berkman on kora. Refreshments provided.
Our next Labyrinth Moon Walk will be Thursday, August 27, from 8:30 to 10 p.m. San Francisco Theological Seminary. 105 Seminary Road, San Anselmo. The event is free.

The School of Applied Theology would like to invite you to its third annual Summer Spirituality Series being held in June.
This program is open to laity, priests, deacons, and women and men religious looking for a richer spiritual life. We invite people to take some Sabbath time, step back from the day-to-day demands of their ministry, relax with God, and care for their spirit.
