Interfaith Retreat

Annual retreat in the spring semester

The Fifth Interfaith Retreat is underway!

 

Join us this winter over Martin Luther King Jr Weekend (Sunday January 18 to Monday January 19). On the retreat we'll explore aspects of our faith, engage in dialogue around our prayer practices and how we are all on the journey to better understanding our place in this world.

Wondering if you should attend the next retreat? Here's what some of our participants who attended the retreat have to say! 

 

Interview with Alice Schade

Why did you decided to come on the retreat?

I decided to go on the retreat last year because I had attended the year previous and had an amazing learning experience.

What did you enjoy most about the retreat?

I also wanted to spend some time with the active interfaith community in a retreat setting because it's an opportunity to talk about many things that we don't have the leisure or time to discuss in everyday life. I really enjoyed the prayer service.

What is something you learned/a takeaway from the retreat?

I took away a lot of frustration with the evangelical nature of some of the Protestant participants on the retreat, honestly, which then fueled a lot of conversations that I learned from both communicatively as well as spiritually.

Why would you recommend someone to come on this retreat?

I would recommend someone to come on the retreat to learn more about other people's and their own faith traditions and to find beauty in the different ways people experience God.

What is one word you think of when you think of your retreat experience?

Fulfilling.

 

 

Interview with Phil Nahkil

Why did you decide to come on the retreat?

I chose to come on the retreat because I had a great experience at last year's retreat. I have had such enriching conversations with people in the context of Interfaith, so I was seeking more of those conversations. 

What did you enjoy most about the retreat?

All the participants came with such a great attitude of openness to share their own experiences and to listen to the experiences of others. I learned so much about the faith of many individuals on the retreat.

What is something you learned/a takeaway from the retreat?

I learned more about representing myself as an individual in my faith tradition rather than trying to speak for my faith community as a whole.

Why would you recommend someone to come on this retreat?

I would recommend people to go on the retreat to have some of the most in depth conversations they have ever had about belief/non-belief, role models, religious practices, and a lot more.

What is one word you think of when you think of your retreat experience?

Commonalities
