Celebrating CTNS's 30th Anniversary: Play

This conference has a threefold purpose:

  • To model a new form of interfaith dialogue, one based on a "third party"/"shared interest", namely science. The participants learn how each faith sees how the other faiths reflect on particular topics in the natural sciences and thereby gain new and unique perspectives on that faith as well as on their own.
  • To model the unique strength of the Graduate Theological Union (GTU): interfaith dialogue that is intrinsic to each participating faith tradition and guided by mutual respect and by a true sense of what can be learned from other faith traditions for one's own tradition.
  • To expand the perception of the importance of "theology and science" for the GTU community and the wider public.
