On June 13, 2015, we hosted The Grand Dialogue in Science and Religion, an inter-institutional, interdisciplinary, and interfaith exploration of science and religion. The keynote for the event was titled "Can a Muslim be a Darwinian?" and our keynote speaker was Enis Doko from Turkey. Special thank you to Kelly James Clark who largely coordinated the program, the John Templeton Foundation grant on Muslim-Christian capacity-building in science and religion, and our Turkish delegation for being a part of the event.

Announcement

We are very excited to announce that we have received a generous grant from the Grand Rapids Community Foundation to expand our interfaith service initiatives to focus more on youth & college campuses, with funding to help develop interfaith leaders at Grand Valley State University, Aquinas College, and Calvin College, as well as support upcoming programming like Eboo Patel and our Triennial Dialogue this October. We can't wait to see our community come together in this interfaith and inter-institutional effort!
