The James B. Duke Library is the site of a Better Together Week exhibit sponsored by Furman Interfaith.
What is Furman Interfaith?
Furman Interfaith is a student group on campus that is made up of people from different religious backgrounds. Members discuss their faiths, learn about one another’s religion, and most importantly, get to know one another. Furman Interfaith’s mission is to promote religious dialogue and understanding on campus.
This interactive display encourages students to use sticky notes to answer the following questions:
- What does your faith mean to you?
- What do you wish more people knew about other religions?
- What do you love about your faith?
A world map and multi-colored stick pins are also provided to answer the question, “Where are you from and what is your faith?”
To celebrate Better Together Week, Furman Interfaith is sponsoring a CLP called “Different Books, Common Word.” This event will feature a 58 minute documentary film about the partnerships between Muslims and Baptists occurring throughout the United States. Following the film there will be short comments by and then a discussion with Dr. Akan Malici (Department of Politics and International Affairs) and Dr. Bryan Bibb (Religion Department). This CLP will be held in Patrick Lecture Hall on Thursday, April 12 from 6-8 p.m.
