Communication systems today allow for a nearly global conversation, yet most people know very little about the religious beliefs of others. This lack of familiarity breeds suspicion and even fear. It is only natural, then, that we create barriers in order to protect ourselves. But is there another way? What if we chose to listen? What if we chose to walk across bridges rather than build taller walls? Professor Dybdahl will explore these issues and suggest that we don’t need to be afraid. The religious climate of our world is more tranquil than we realize. It’s actually a beautiful day in the neighborhood.
