Being Responsibly Engaged in the World (B.R.E.W.) Interview Assignment
This assignment, created by Jacqueline Bussie of Concordia College, asks students to interview religiously diverse neighbors as part of her “Faith in Dialogue: Interfaith Leadership” course.
The following assignment was developed by Dr. Jacqueline Bussie for use in her “Faith in Dialogue:
Interfaith Leadership” course at Concordia College (Moorhead, MN) to help students engage with interfaith themes. Religious literacy, exploring personal theologies or philosophies of interfaith cooperation, and developing the skills and knowledge necessary for interfaith leadership are central components of this course. This particular activity is meant to accompany one of the core texts used in the course, My Neighbor’s Faith: Stories of Interreligious Encounter, Growth, and Transformation (Peace, Rose, and Mobley, eds., Orbis: 2012).
In 2014, Dr. Bussie participated in a Teaching Interfaith Understanding faculty development seminar, run
in partnership between the Council of Independent Colleges and Interfaith America, and generously
funded by the Henry Luce Foundation. For information on future seminars, and to access more resources
created by seminar alumni, visit the faculty page.
