Theme: Us, Them and All: Weaving our Identities and Common Humanity within the Unity of Life


July 19 -24, 2020


Description: What do Abrahamic traditions teach about recognizing the humanity of people in other cultures or religions? Children are in still in cages, the twin pandemics of COVID-19 and institutional/structural racism are revealing even more starkly racial inequity, and vulnerable people are encouraged to risk themselves for the economy. We are having difficulty recognizing others as human. What do Abrahamic traditions have to offer to help us weave our identities, common humanity within the unity of life?

Holden Village and Paths to Understanding invite you to listen to our  and podcasts and art exploration with a Jewish and Muslim artist.
