Interfaith Roundtable

Comin’ in from Carmen Yip ’12:

Don’t turn away just at the sight of the word “interfaith” or “religion”? Instead, you should feel really pumped up for a good conversation and join us in Woodhead Lounge in Exley this Thursday 10/20 at 6:30pm.

This dinner is targeting at all religious student groups at Wes, but everyone is welcome.  We want student leaders to know one another, and to share their year plans/calendars and look for co-programming ideas.

Seriously, don’t miss out!

&& Bring a dish, it’s a potluck after all.

Date: Oct. 20 – Oct. 20
Time: 6:30 PM – 8:00 PM
Place: Woodhead Lounge
Cost: $0

Mystical/Theological discussion group at Interfaith House

10 sefirotFrom Jared Gimbel ’11:

Perhaps maybe you’ve always wanted to share something we all know about but never glimpse in the same way. Concerning the idea of God and the idea of the world (note the separation between the two), whether you believe one, both, or neither to exist, we need to find out exactly how similar our opinions, as different as they seem, actually are to one another.

Come, and let us partake of the great secrets of the Mystical tradition throughout the ages!

Date: Wednesday, Oct. 7
Time: 9:00 PM – 10:00 PM
