Audri to be a Featured Speaker at the Williams College Interfaith Conference

Williams College Spring Interfaith Conference: Forgiving the Unforgivable

Williams Interfaith Conference Schedule
Williams Interfaith is planning an interfaith conference to be held April 15th-17th, 2016. The theme of the conference is “Forgiving the Unforgivable.” The purpose of the conference is to engage in dialogue across religions about what in our faiths individually and collectively we believe is unforgivable, and how we struggle as a people and as a community to forgive and reconcile. Our reason for choosing this topic was to encourage dialogue between members of different faiths, rather than each person speaking purely from the position of their faith without really engaging with what others believe. We also think this topic is very timely given current events in the United States and the World. We plan to invite chaplains and a three student delegation from ten colleges in New England. During the conference, we will have lectures, panels, smaller group discussions, worship opportunities, and services projects.

We have invited two speakers Audri Scott Williams, and Bishop Gene Robinson, and have received confirmation from both speakers that they are available. The biographies of Audri Scott Williams and Bishop Gene Robinson can be found on the last page. We believe that both speakers will greatly deepen the discourse occurring at the conference by giving the perspective people who are engaging difficulty interfaith and intrafaith discussions on a global scale.

We hope to share phenomenal interfaith spirit of Williams, engage the wider Williams and Williamstown community in discussion about faith and interfaith, and learn from the visiting schools about how we can further grow interfaith in our communities. All events are free and open to the public.
