How do we care for ourselves and others in the midst of a pandemic?Many of us draw on religious or philosophical teachings in moments of crisis -- and there's always more to learn from wisdom traditions. It's also clear that, in our interconnected world, interreligious dialogue and action feel more urgent than ever.
Simran Jeet Singh, Ph.D. will draw on his experiences as a member of the Sikh religious tradition and an interreligious activist, as well as his study of the Sikh tradition, to shed light on Sikh teachings about God’s love, hospitality, care for others and the self, and doing justice even in difficult times. In turn, these teachings also add new ideas and nuance to dialogue among people of diverse religious affiliations, including those with no formal affiliation.
