All jokes aside, on Wednesday, April 22, Hastings College will welcome the Interfaith Amigos.
Pastor Don Mackenzie, Rabbi Ted Falcon and Imam Jamal Rahman—known as the Interfaith Amigos—started working together after 9/11. The trio is best known for their unique blend of spiritual wisdom and humor used to openly address the usual taboos of interfaith dialogue — the “awkward” parts of each tradition, in order to create a more authentic conversation.
The itinerary for their visit to campus is as follows:
10:00 a.m. – 10:50 a.m.: Chapel Service – “Awakening to Compassion for All of Creation,” French Memorial Chapel (800 N. Turner Ave.)
11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m.: Lunch Session – HSU Room C (705 E. 9th St.)
- Informal discussion session revolving around the following three questions: What does it mean to be human? What is the universe and how do we fit in? How shall we live our lives?
7:00 p.m. – 7:45 p.m. Keynote Address – “How Religion Goes Astray,” French Memorial Chapel
- Presentation followed by questions and answers, and a book signing.
