5 days left to register! Cherry Hill Seminary Interfaith Class - M. Mueller

January 17 - April 25, Wednesdays 8:30 PM EST
A Cherry Hill Seminary Masters and Pagan Community Education course by Michelle Mueller, M.Div.
 Sharing dreams and values with people of other faiths, and working towards peace while respecting differences...this is the practice of interfaith.

This course will introduce people to interfaith and help those with experience deepen their practice. Students will learn best practices and organizational structures of the interfaith movement and the steps for getting involved.

We will look at the local, national, and international levels of interfaith, the core values of each, and the steps for getting involved. This is the kind of course where students and instructor will all be teachers to each other, as you will find similar to the interfaith movement itself. Expect a cooperative classroom and an experience of diversity during the semester!  Students should also expect to experience diversity during the semester.
