Interfaith Social Justice Program
Faith. Justice. Dialogue. Dinner.

Beginning January 23rd, join 10-12 UIC Jewish, Muslim, and Christian students as we engage in interfaith dialogue around issues of social justice and the common good.

For 8 dinner sessions during spring semester, we will gather over dinner, build relationships, engage and learn about intergroup dialogue, delve into our faith identities and traditions, and organize to act for peace and justice.

One Agape student, Michael Krenzer, wrote up a different kind of reflection. Actually, he accumulated all the reflections that he was constantly writing while on the trip as a sort of memoir/diary. It is longer than all the other blog posts, but it is worth the read... especially all the way to the end. You can download the document with all of Michael's formatting and presentation with the link below. You can also follow the link to the high quality pictures he took of our ventures through New York with the bottom most link.
