An annual lecture series funded by the Offices of the Vice President for Mission and Chief Diversity Officer, Being Religious Interreligiously brings to campus each year a noted scholar in the fields of interreligious dialogue or comparative theology as an expression of the Society of Jesus’ judgment that to be religious today is to be interreligious. The lecture series seeks accountability to religious neighbors in a pluralistic and globalized world, works for justice by joining hearts and hands with faith neighbors, and generally seeks to enhance the university and Spokane community’s proficiency with current matters of interreligious concern. The lecture series targets a student audience as well as members of the wider university and Spokane communities. Admission is always free and open to the public. DVDs of past lectures are available at Gonzaga’s Foley library and can be streamed online from YouTube by using the hyperlinks on this webpage. Questions, comments, and suggestions can be directed to John N. Sheveland at firstname.lastname@example.org or (509) 313-6784.
