INTERFAITH SEMINARIAN RETREAT

The Interfaith Seminarian Retreat, also known as the SOFT program (Seminarians: Sharing Our Faith Traditions) is an annual dialogue facilitated by The Multicultural Alliance in partnership with COSTS (The Council of Southwestern Theological Seminaries). Seminarians and clergy of many faith traditions, including Jewish, Christian and Muslim, are gathered for a week-long retreat in which each participant is given the opportunity to express and inform others of their faith traditions, and gain valuable insight to the traditions of faiths other than their own. This retreat facilitates the promotion and acceptance of cultural and theological differences.
