          Interfaith Roundtable

          The Interfaith Roundtable, funded by the Faith Council at Duke Chapel, meets regularly with the goals of building fellowship between Religious Life leaders, and strengthening appreciation for each other’s religious tradition. Each session focuses on a theme, with a Religious Life participant bringing a text from their tradition to reflect upon the theme. Past themes have been "Gathering," "Protest," and "Conversion."

          The group, coordinated by Rabbi Elana Friedman and Rev. Kathryn Lester-Bacon, is currently open only to Religious Life staff. 

          • If you would like to discuss possiblities for interreligious engagement on campus, please reach out to Rev. Kathryn Lester-Bacon


          Finding Sanctuary Speaker Series

          In collaboration with the Penny Pilgram George Women’s Leadership Initiative, Interfaith Engagement at Duke Chapel invited four dynamic women to campus in the spring of 2017. These women reflected publicly on the ways in which their lives and work meet at the intersections of faith-based advocacy and social justice. Listen to the first two talks, available on the Chapel's Apple podcast.
