From the Tri-Co Courageous Conversations Planning Committee:
We warmly invite you to an interfaith conference taking place at Bryn Mawr College on February 1 and 2, 2018:
“Courageous Conversations: Equipping Ourselves for Dialogue Across Differences in Faith and World View”
The conference will equip participants to frame useful questions that allow them to deeply listen, moving beyond “us vs. them” and hearing the personal fears, desires and experiences of others. A thoughtful speaker, case studies, and practical techniques will be part of the program.
The program includes a Thursday evening dinner and speaker, followed by Friday workshops. There will be a break for Jummah (Muslim prayers) and an optional Shabbat service at the end of the day on Friday. Staff and faculty are welcome to attend parts or all of the program. There is no cost. This is supported by InterFaith Youth Core, the organization that brought Eboo Patel to our campus in November.

During the planning process, the committee was intentional about choosing a start that would make it convenient for Swat students, faculty and staff to attend (see schedule below) .

- Feb 1 at 4:50 (if you want good food at BM) or 6:40 (if you come for the keynote speaker)
