"Being Religious as Being Interreligious: Implications for Living One's Faith Today", with Dr. Peter C. Phan, Ignacio Ellacuría Chair of Catholic Social Thought, Department of Theology, Georgetown University
Dr. Phan’s presentation will discuss the challenges and opportunities of being a religious person today and the necessity of interreligious dialogue for the faithfulness of one's spiritual life. What are the theological issues posed by being interreligious? Is there the possibility of "multi-religious belonging"? What will "religion" look like if this being interreligious is taken seriously? How is religious identity to be formed? What is the point of "mission" and conversion?
