Bishop's Jung Interfaith Bus Tour & Retreat
From Friday, August 17, 2018
To Sunday, August 19, 2018

Sponsored by Wisconsin Conference Commission on Christian Unity and Interreligious Relationships

Bishop Hee-Soo Jung invites you to join him for an Interfaith Bus Tour and Retreat August 17-19, 2018. Our theme for the event is “Alike and Different: Understanding Real Religious Lives.”

It is good to learn facts about the religions of our neighbors. But getting to know members of other religious communities has an even deeper importance. Then we can learn about other people’s real religious lives, including what shapes them, how they struggle, and what sustains them. In the process we will see how we are different and how we are alike. More significantly, we will have the opportunity to gain a deeper vision of what God wants us to see and acknowledge in our neighbors as good, what God wants us to support in our pluralistic world, and how God wants us to grow spiritually. Our tour and retreat are designed both to help us learn about our neighbor’s religion and about real religious lives.
