What does it mean to be a person of faith in Falmouth and here on the Cape? What can we learn from each other? What can we learn about our own religious tradition by hearing about other traditions and their perspective on our own? FJC and Waquoit Congregational Church are partnering to host this special program and to come together to hear words of instruction and inspiration about interfaith dialogue and to initiate a dialogue process within our community that fosters interfaith learning, social justice efforts, and conversation. As divisions of all sorts have increased in our country, we turn to Dr. Mobley for guidance on how to sit in dialogue, sharing and hearing each other’s stories. Please consider attending this lecture and inviting friends to join you.
Our guide is Professor Greg Mobley of Yale Divinity School, an ordained Baptist Minister and co-editor of the award-winning anthology of essays on interfaith learning, My Neighbor’s Faith: Stories of Interfaith Encounter, Growth, and Transformation (Orbis, 2012). Professor Mobley recently participated in a conference at Reform Judaism’s Los Angeles HUC-JIR campus on “Truth in Judaism and From Outside Perspectives.” Active in Interfaith work, Mobley was a co-founder of the CIRCLE interfaith program with Rabbi Or Rose and Jennifer Peace at Andover Newton Seminary. He is part of AJC’s Christian Leadership Initiative hosted by the Shalom Hartmann Institute in Jerusalem and also teaches courses at Yale Divinity School on interfaith learning, most recently a course in Life Cycle Rituals from an Interreligious Perspective.
