What is the Role of Religion in Civic Life?
Sunday, Oct. 25, 7-8:30 p.m.
What role does religion play in civic life? Join us to delve into this question at Community Conversations—a series that brings together Waterville faith and community leaders with Colby faculty and students to consider major issues of common concern.
This fall, our program will feature a conversation between Rabbi Lisa Vinikoor of Beth Israel Congregation in Bath, Zach Heiden, Chief Counsel at the Maine ACLU, and Pastor Craig Riportella of Centerpoint Community Church in Waterville.
Following a question and answer session, we will invite community members and college students into breakout rooms to continue the conversation.
