Inter-Seminary Initiative 2021 Student Conversation Series: Sharing, Exploring, and Envisioning Together

Are you a seminarian or studying at a theological institution?  Join us for a three part Student Conversation Series hosted by the Inter-Seminary Initiative of Interfaith Philadelphia  (Please note, Interfaith Philadelphia understands “seminary” to mean any institution of higher learning devoted to theological education, therefore theological students of any faith tradition are invited to participate.)

Throughout this virtual dialogue series, participants from different faith traditions will hear from fellow seminarians and be invited to share about their diverse paths, explore their lived experiences, and envision their unique futures in religious leadership.

Run by and for seminarians, this will be an enriching time to listen to, and learn from one another, as we exchange the insights we’ve each gathered on our respective journeys.  If you are not a current student please share this opportunity with the theological institutions and/or students you are connected to!

Each session is a stand-alone experience, but we hope you will drop in to all of them! See below to learn more and to register!
