About This Assignment
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 tool is used to incorporate experiential and expeditionary learning into the course.
