MY NEIGHBOR'S FAITH: Interfaith Cooperation in an Age of Religious Diversity

Friday, August 30 - Sunday, September 1, 2019

 

Drawing from St. Benedict's habit of extending hospitality to others, this workshop will explore ways for us to engage across lines of religious and worldview difference. The sacred space of the Abbey will provide a safe space for guests and guest speakers of various communions and faith traditions to learn from one another. Recommended text is "My Neighbor's Faith: Stories of Interreligious Encounter, Growth, and Transformation."

 

Fr. Francis Benedict has been a monk of Valyermo since 1967.  He earned an MA in Philosophy from Loyola-Marymount University and an MS in Theology from Mt. Angel in Oregon.  He was ordained a priest in 1976.  He served as the Abbey's abbot for 16 years.  His special areas of ministry include spiritual direction, preaching retreats, and working with 12-step recovery groups.  In addition to many responsibilities at the Abbey, he now serves as the Director of Oblates.

 

Dr. Yvonne Wilber, Obl.OSB, is an oblate of St. Andrew's Monastery and works as an academic librarian and adjunct instructor of Religion at California Lutheran University in Thousand Oaks. Yvonne holds master's degrees in Library Science and Intellectual Leadership, and earned her PhD. in Humanities with a major in Philosophy. Yvonne's intellectual work lies in the intersections of humanity, technology, and ecology, which supports her "heart work" in helping people build bridges across all sorts of difference.
