 Christianity, Hinduism and Islam at the Crossroads

Description

International guest speaker Francis X. Clooney, S.J. (Havard) presents a lecture entitled 'Christianity, Hinduism and Islam at the Crossroads: Believing Communities in the Age of Secularism, Pluralism and Individualism'.

It may seem that religions are competitors, wary and suspicious of one another. But, in fact, religions all are facing the challenge of secularization, the fact of a plurality whereby no religion can any more be a sole arbiter of a society's values, and so too the waning of institutions, as faith becomes more private and individualized in many parts of the world.

Though each tradition is different, the common challenge is to survive and thrive in a secular, pluralistic, and individualized world. How to be a Christian or Muslim or Hindu today? We do well to learn interreligiously, talking with one another about our futures, the passing on of the faith, the meaning of religious education, and ways of being more deeply religious without violence or fear.

Professor Clooney, a Catholic priest and member of the Society of Jesus, will reflect on the American scene, his teaching at Harvard University, and his many years of studying Hinduism, as a start for this conversation.
