    Thursday, February 21, 2013 - 7:00pm 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. Jennifer Howe Peace (Ph.D. '05) is Assistant Professor of Interfaith Studies at Andover Newton Theological School (ANTS) and serves as director of CIRCLE (the Center for Interreligious and Communal Leadership Education), a joint venture of ANTS and Hebrew College. She co-edited, along with Or Rose and Greg Mobley, My Neighbor's Faith (Orbis, 2012). 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 Graduate Theological Union has long been a leading center for ecumenical theological education and for interreligious dialogue and understanding. The annual Surjit Singh Lecture in Comparative Religious Thought and Culture builds on this tradition by fostering interreligious and cross-cultural communication and understanding, without compromising the integrity and essential telos of a religion or a culture. This endowed lectureship brings to the GTU a distinguished scholar/church leader to address religion and culture from a cross-cultural perspective.
