Difficult Dialogues: A Toolkit for Leading Conversations across Cultures, Politics, and Religions
Dinner and Program: Friday, February 7, 7:30-10 pm
Workshop and Lunch: Saturday, February 8, 9:30 am-1:30 pm
Join the Tufts University Chaplaincy, CAFE, and CPR for a weekend leadership retreat at the Interfaith Center. In a diverse community like Tufts, we face many difficult dialogues regarding cultural differences, political perspectives, and religious identities when those intersecting identities do not correspond with the views of others. Join various student leaders and future leaders in learning how to approach these dialogues in order to create constructive conversations that help move the community forward in healthy, respectful, educational, and constructive ways. While we may not always agree, learning how to listen to and understand others’ perspectives, especially when our own personal beliefs differ strongly, will help us to learn and our community to deepen. Secure your spot by registering at Eventbrite.

“A Rabbi, a Minister, and Four Big Questions”, Tuesdays, February 11 and 25, March 4 and 11, 6-7:30 pm, Interfaith Center (58 Winthrop Street) Join Rev. Greg McGonigle and Rabbi Jeffrey Summit for dinner, self-reflection, and lively conversation. Each session will explore one big question in depth, such as: Where do you feel at home? What have you learned so far? When do you conform? and For whom are we responsible? Through text, image, the arts, and personal sharing we will learn more about ourselves and each other and think about our impact on the world. We’re looking to gather a diverse group and all are welcome. Please let us know if you’re joining us so we can order enough food. RSVP to Linda Karpowich at To learn more about our approach visit:
