Interfaith Fridays

What does your creation story tell us about your faith tradition, the ways in which it is similar to or different from other faith traditions, and its relationship with humankind?

Nine lectures, on nine Fridays, from nine leaders in nine different faith traditions will answer that question. Moderated by the Rt. Rev. V. Gene Robinson, vice president of religion and senior pastor, this lively and engaging conversation is also livestreamed on Facebook and archived at, so you can participate regardless of whether you are on the grounds or away.


Thank you for your patience as we rebuild our calendar listing accurately reflect the offerings of our 2020 online assembly. Our program directors are currently working with 2020 lecturers, chaplains and artists to confirm their participation via remote video feed. All events listed below are confirmed. Please check back regularly, as we post frequent updates regarding confirmed programs and the online forum in which they will take place.
