Around the world, lively debate is taking place on the role of religion in society. Together we shape a positive pluralism in facing challenges to societal well-being, meaning making, and that draws from religious wisdom. The School of Theology and Ministry’s Office of Ecumenical and Interreligious Activities was established to create manifold ways of encouraging far-thinking dialogue in the community, society and the world. The office has hosted academic conferences and has created viable resources with partners that include the Lutheran World Federation, the World Council of Churches, and the Parliament of the World’s Religions. While the office itself is no longer in operation, the work of the office has been transitioned to the Center for Religious Wisdom and World Affairs.
