Institutional Equity Educational Workshop | Exploring Diverse Approaches to Sacred Time Across Religious Traditions

This workshop will be facilitated by Kelly Stone, Associate Dean for Institutional Equity and College Chaplain; Rahimjon Abdugafurov, Associate Director for Religious and Spiritual Life and Muslim Chaplain; Emma Kippley-Ogman, Associate Chaplain for Jewish Life; and Sorrel Virginia Hester, Assistant Chaplain for Christian Life, Center for Religious and Spiritual Life.

You may be acquainted with terms like Gregorian, Julian, Luni-Solar, and Lunar, which are intricately linked to the observance of sacred times and the identification of religious holidays. In this workshop, we will delve into the measurement and designation of sacred moments, encompassing aspects such as fasting, work restrictions, prayers, and celebrations. Attendees will work to recognize the distinctiveness of various religious traditions and engage in discussions about proactive, responsive, and considerate approaches to supporting faith practices as we honor our commitment to inclusivity as a community.

Lunch will be provided; RSVP required.
