Culturing for Nonviolence


Event Description:

Through video and interactive simulations, families will learn how various religious traditions instill the values of nonviolence and respecting difference. 

Current conventional wisdom often stresses that diversity of religious and cultural traditions is weakening society. This workshop will demonstrate the opposite: Differences are a source of community power! Using filmed interviews, personal and faith-based stories, small group conversation, and role-playing activities, different religious perspectives—from Christianity to Hinduism—on humanity’s shared values of nonviolence and respect will be explored.

Walk-ins welcome, but RSVPs encouraged by Nov. 10

Presented by The Center for Interfaith Cooperation, Episcopal Diocese of Indianapolis, Hindu Temple of Central Indiana, Indiana Interchurch Center, and Marian University.
