Religious Education Association
Theme: Teaching In and For Multifaith Contexts: Concepts and Practices

Sunday – 6:45 PM-8:15 PM
Marriott Copley Place-Boston University (Third Level)

How shall we educate our faith communities so that they can practice hospitality in the world of many faiths? How are we to prepare religious leaders who are capable of leading congregations and communities in the practice of hospitality in a multifaith context? How are we to equip religious leaders in the practice of ministry in interfaith settings? What curriculum design, educational programs, and pedagogies shall we pursue to lead and minister effectively in a multifaith setting? These are the larger questions that framed a new shared book project, Teaching for a Multifaith World (ed. Eleazar S. Fernandez, Wipf and Stock 2017). This session will be an interactive engagement with several of the authors from the book, focused on sharing both conceptual frames and pragmatic practices for doing this work.

This session is an opportunity to connect with the Religious Education Association, a related scholarly organization of the AAR. We value interdisciplinary and intercultural research at the intersections of religion and education (see
