The “Conversations” are an informal study and discussion program of the Abrahamic faith traditions. It invites Christians, Jews and Muslims, as well as those of other or non-faith traditions, to meet and learn about one another’s beliefs. This exchange offers opportunities to forge friendships with one another as well as cooperation that can benefit the larger community.
Non-clergy facilitators are recruited and trained to lead the discussions. A Study Guide is provided to the participants at no cost. College professors as well as clergy serve as resources, extending the knowledge beyond the Study Guide and answering questions the participants may have.
