The Duke University Faith Council and Clergy Beyond Borders will hold a presentation on "From Fear to Faith: Advancing American Voices of Religious Pluralism" discussing how to respond to attacks on faith communities and resources for respectful pluralism within Judaism, Christianity and Islam. The discussion is part of events at Duke commemorating the anniversary of 9/11.
Clergy Beyond Borders is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization that promotes mutual recognition among religious communities by building bridges of understanding and cooperation instead of removing meaningful borders between them.
The Duke University Faith Council and Duke Divinity School will sponsor an interfaith panel reflecting on the 10th anniversary of 9/11 with Sam Wells, dean of Duke Chapel; Richard B. Hays, dean of Duke Divinity School; and Sumi Kim, Buddhist chaplain, Laura Lieber, assistant director of Jewish Studies, and Abdullah Antepli, Muslim chaplain, all of Duke.
The Duke University Sunday Worship Service will feature Jason Byassee, senior pastor of Boone United Methodist Church in Boone, N.C., preaching. He is also a contributing editor to The Christian Century and a fellow in theology and leadership at Leadership Education at Duke Divinity School. He worked at the Divinity School from 2008-2011, writing and teaching about theology and leadership, as well as editing the Call & Response blog for the Faith & Leadership online magazine of Leadership Education.
The Vocal Arts Ensemble of Durham will present J.S. Bach's Mass in B Minor, with Orchestra Pro Cantores and soloists. For tickets, contact the Duke University Box Office at (919) 684-4444 or visit www.tickets.duke.edu.
