Be-Friend: Interfaith Friendship Program from University Chaplaincy
Jumbos near and far! Great news: Be-Friend is back! This semester-long interfaith friendship project is designed for participants to go deep and to talk about the things that matter like our values, our sense of purpose, and our questions about life. You will hone the skills of active listening while experimenting with shared spiritual practices from different religious and philosophical traditions. Our multifaith chaplains have contributed to the program, offering a diverse array of spiritual practices including nature walks, meditation exercises, listening to music, deep reading—of poetry, art, the world, our lives, and one another.
Participating students, graduate students, staff, faculty, and alumni will be paired in dyads and will commit to spending an hour together each week. Students will be paired with other students, and the same for staff/faculty and alumni. The program will begin the first week of October and all are welcome!
