2020 Teen Trialogue
The 2020 Teen Trialogue is scheduled for Sunday, January 26 and Sunday, February 2. Adult leaders will lead youth in a discussion on the theme, "Our Journey for Justice and Peace: How our faith traditions inform and encourage us to be change-makers."
The first session on Sunday, January 26, will be hosted by Boston Avenue United Methodist Church, and the second session on Sunday, February 2, will be at Congregation B'nai Emunah. Both sessions are from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. A vegetarian meal is served at each session.
Teen Trialogue is free and open to high school students, but the Youth Interfaith Committee requests that adult advisors register all youth who plan on attending the 2020 series. To register youth, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The annual Teen Trialogue series is an effort to encourage interaction and dialogue among Christians, Jews, Muslims, and often persons of other faith traditions as well. The three-session series has been enormously popular and successful since its inception in 1983 and provides an opportunity for high school students from the Jewish, Christian, and Muslim faith traditions (and sometimes others) to discuss and learn about their own faith traditions while simultaneously exploring others. It fosters a strengthening of each participant’s chosen faith, a better understanding of other faiths, and cross-cultural and inter-religious friendships.
Teen Trialogue participants have said:
“I liked gaining knowledge about other faiths.”
“I liked meeting new people.”
“I enjoyed experiencing different cultures.”
“I liked being able to share personal experiences.”
“I liked getting to know the different holidays of various religions.”
