December 13, 2017

Trice and Mejido (E-news)Along with faculty from the School of Law, the Albers School of Business and Economics, and the College of Arts and Sciences, the School of Theology and Ministry’s Dr. Michael Trice, Associate Dean of Ecumenical and Interreligious Dialogue, and Dr. Manuel Mejido, Director of the Center for Religious Wisdom & World Affairs, will contribute to the Seattle University 2018 Winter Alumni Seminar Series, “Christian unity and World Peace: Ecumenism and Dialogue Among World Religions after 500 Years.”

On the evening of January 30th, Dr. Trice will present a session entitled, “Christian Identity in a Multi-Religious World: Four Gifts.” Taking as its point of departure the Reformation understanding of the power of marginality as a place of grace available to all, this session will present on four distinct gifts that Christians are able to offer in our current local, national and international climate.

On the evening of February 20th, Dr. Mejido will lead a seminar entitled, “‘Peace is Not Merely the Absence of War’: World Religions and the Sustainable Development Goals.” This session will survey the increasingly important role that faith-based organizations are playing in community development initiatives across the globe. Interfaith partnerships in this domain will be considered as spaces where mutual understanding across religious traditions is advanced.
