Rathbun Fellowship for Religious Encounter

Main content start

Rathbun Fellowship for Religious Encounter 2021-2022

Join our multifaith community and learn about different faith traditions from an insider’s view. The Rathbun Fellowship for Religious Encounter brings together faith leaders of different traditions to discuss their communities, core beliefs, practices, and challenges. Religious traditions come alive through practitioners who are animated by their faith. Honest and open dialogue across faith traditions create a unique learning experience where faith and knowledge intersect. The fellowship meets weekly over dinner to spiritually engage and learn from each other in an open and welcoming environment. Fellows are encouraged to bring their whole spiritual selves to the gathering regardless of their faith tradition. This fellowship is meant to be a spiritually uplifting experience for people of faith, people of no faith, and seekers alike. RSVP's must be submitted at least one day before each session for dinner to be provided.
