He will share from his experience and study, as well as guide our thoughts around questions of negotiating diversity and interfaith dialogue. Based on his experience, Dr. Thangaraj shares a profound discovery: other faith traditions have enriched his own Christian spiritual practices. Recently retired from teaching World Christianity at the Candler School of Theology, Dr. Thangaraj continues to have a lively calendar of speaking engagements on topics of dialogue with other faith traditions and one’s own spiritual discovery in the midst of diverse religious practices. He has been actively involved with inter-religious dialogue at both the local and international levels. Dr. Thangaraj has written three books and is currently working on a fourth, Negotiating Diversity: Crossing Boundaries as Spiritual Practice. He has also written twenty hymns as part of his passion for Christian hymnody in Tamil, India.

                  The Evolution of Faith: A Changing Faith in a Changing World - Philip Gulley Religions tend to claim ancient authority for many of their doctrines and practices, failing to realize how contemporary culture shapes and influences their faith. Vital religion can and should celebrate its past, but when it fails to acknowledge current progress, it can do great damage. Join Philip Gulley in reflecting on the importance of a past and present faith. PHILIP GULLEY is a Quaker pastor and beloved writer and speaker from Danville, Indiana. He has become the voice of small-town American life through such works as his acclaimed Harmony series of novels chronicling life in the eccentric Quaker community of Harmony, Indiana and the best-selling Porch Talk series of inspirational and humorous stories. He is the author of, If the Church Were Christian, in which he explores a Christianity that is consistent with the teachings of Jesus and a church that encourages Jesus’ example as a model for living. In his latest theological endeavor, The Evolution of Faith: How God is Creating a Better Christianity, Gulley urges the reader to let go of tightly held beliefs and start the journey towards a dynamic and fluid faith – a Christianity we can believe in. Gulley attended Marian College in Indianapolis where he studied theology and sociology, and he received his Master of Divinity in 1992 from Christian Theological Seminar. Gulley is currently the pastor at Fairfield Friends Meeting near Indianapolis. He writes the popular monthly Back Home Again column for Indianapolis Monthly magazine. Additionally, he hosted the television program “Porch Talk with Philip Gulley on the Indiana PBS affiliate WFYI and their flagship show Across Indiana, for which he received Emmy® Awards in 2007 and 2009. In 2010 he was awarded an honorary Doctor of Humane Letters degree by his alma mater, Christian Theological Seminary.
