What is the meaning of my neighbor’s faith for my own?

What is the meaning of my neighbor’s faith for my own?

On October 13 , 2019 the Rev James Farwell speaks about, “What Is the Meaning of My Neighbor’s Faith for My Own?”

Spiritual traditions normally think their practices and philosophies are drawn from their own texts, traditions, and teachers. Is it time to recognize that being religious, being spiritual, is always being inter-religious, inter-spiritual?

The Rev. James W. Farwell, Ph.D. is Professor of Theology and Liturgy at the flagship seminary of the Episcopal Church in Alexandria, Virginia. With a 25-year practice in the Dōgen Zen tradition, Dr. Farwell teaches and writes on Christian sacramental and liturgical theology, Christian-Buddhist comparative theology, and theologies of religious plurality.
