Upcoming Events on Campus and in the Community

Tuesday, January 22 through Friday, February 1

 

“The Golden Rule” Quilt display

 

Sinclair Library Loggia area

The Multifaith Campus Alliance is pleased to sponsor this display of quilts from the Dayton International Peace Museum. The quilts represent more than a dozen different faith traditions, and each one expresses the “Golden Rule” of treating others with care and respect.

Come and learn more about these faith traditions, and celebrate the promise of compassion and care that is the Golden Rule.

“The Anthropology of Religion”

1 pm to 2 pm

Sinclair Library loggia area

 

From the beginning of humanity, religion has addressed the basic human need for connection to something greater. Professor Kathy Rowell will share how this religious desire has been present in all faith traditions and how it connects us all.

 

Wednesday, January 30

“Faith Fair”

11 am to 1 pm

Sinclair Library Loggia area

 

In conjunction with the display of the “Golden Rule” quilts, we will host a gathering of representatives from faith communities of many different traditions. They will be available to engage in conversation and share more information about their faith tradition.

 

Thursday, March 21

“Discovering Your Own Truth: Identifying as Non-religious in a Religious Culture”

1 pm to 2 pm

Sinclair Library loggia area

 

More and more people find themselves moving away from a connection to any particular faith tradition. But the “none of the above” label can be a challenging one to take on, in the midst of a culture that assumes everyone is religious.

Professor Kathy Rowell will lead a panel of presenters who share their perspective as people who identify as non-religious. They will move us beyond some unhelpful stereotypes and engage in discussion about how we can all move forward together.

 

Tuesday, April 9

“I Want to Hear Your Voice: Muslim Women”

Time TBD

Sinclair Library loggia area

This program might also be entitled “Sinclair Listens.” We hope to make this the first of a series of programs in which we hear from persons and groups who are otherwise silenced in our midst. A panel of Muslim women (students, faculty, and staff) will share their perspectives and respond to questions from the audience. It promises to be a time of learning for all of us!
