Common Grounds Learning Community
How does studying what we eat and how we eat to help us learn about our own and other’s faith traditions?
Would you like to understand more about your own and other faiths by learning about how our lives are shaped by our beliefs?
Would you like to:
- Explore some of Philadelphia’s many communities to experience traditions of many of the world’s religions
- Learn about the ways different faith traditions use food to express their beliefs
- Develop interfaith leadership skills that are in demand in many fields, including business, education, government and social services
This Interfaith Learning Community gathers first-year students to meet with people of different faiths, cultures and backgrounds to advance the common good—to discover “common grounds” on which to build community.
In joining this learning community, you will learn more about the religious factors shaping our society and the global community today, and will be supported in exploring your own faith commitments.
No previous knowledge or experience with a faith tradition is required—just an openness to learning from and with your peers, your faculty and others of good faith who wish to break bread together.
