The Center for Religious Wisdom & World Affairs invites scholars in religious studies as well as from multiple disciplines, to reflect together on specific challenges that impact our lives and the lives of those around us in the world today. Scholars meet in two year cycles and explore together with practitioners both the themes for that cycle and a response to these challenges. Scholars also gather with ecumenical and interreligious partners, and work alongside the Center Team, for creating audio and video resources then made available to local communities. At the end of each cycle a peer-reviewed text is published on the theme.
The Center will convene a symposium of 10 scholars on a virtual platform over the course of three days – April 7-9, 2021 – in order to discern the theme of gratitude toward God or the divine.
The Center will convene the second symposium of 10 scholars on gratitude on a virtual platform over the course of three days -- October 27-29, 2021 – of study and dialogue on the theme of gratitude toward God.
