Religious Pluralism

July 16, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm PDT

Indigenous and settler friends Hubert Barton Sr. and Doug Smart stand under an arch at a Buddhist Temple.

Canada today practices “inclusive secularism,” welcoming multiple religious traditions into the public sphere. How should ministers working in Indigenous contexts, rooted in particular traditions, and confronting a history of oppression, participate in pluralism? Participants will explore answers, as together we survey three non-Christian traditions, examine different models of inter-faith and Indigenous/non-Indigenous connection, and speak in-depth with one another.

A one-week intensive zoom course at the Vancouver School of Theology’s Indigenous Studies Summer Program, taught by Laura Duhan Kaplan. Open for credit or audit to pre-registered students only . Students attending for full graduate credit will attend an afternoon tutorial session.
