AARP CT will welcome attendees from around the country for this opportunity to develop your professional toolkit and to create livable communities right in your neighborhood and for those you serve in surrounding communities in Connecticut. This 3-part “Faith in the Neighborhood Series” runs from October 14th through November 9th of this year.
10/14/2021 @ 12PM ET (60min) Religious Manyness: The US—especially in certain urban areas—is intensely religiously diverse. Agreement with that statement is easy to find. But finding agreement on what “religion” is? That is not so easy! Yet, however it is defined, everyone is oriented toward it somehow. In this session, we learn about the scope of religious diversity in the US and how it came to be. We learn methods for understanding what “religion” is; obstacles to and options for interreligious engagement; and wise policies for navigating the multi-faith neighborhood.
