The rule of not discussing politics or religion will be broken at an event Nov. 18, “Faith and Politics: A Conversation,” co-hosted by The University of Scranton, in partnership with the Greater Scranton MLK Commission, Lackawanna County Department of Arts and Culture, Marywood University, Penn State Scranton and the Scranton Area Ministerium. 

facilitated dialogue called “Faith and Politics: A Conversation” will take place at 5:30 p.m. on the fourth floor of Shopland Hall, Scranton Cultural Center. Reservations are required to attend the event, which is free of charge and open to the public. 

            We will be asking participants to share how their faith or worldview shapes their political views. This program invites individuals from different backgrounds and political affiliations to participate by sharing their experiences, stories, hopes, and concerns through a structured dialogue session to build better understanding of ourselves and our neighbors in Northeastern Pennsylvania.

            The University has organized similar discussions on campus since 2017 as part of an ongoing “Bursting Our Political Bubbles” Dialogue Initiative, which blends the reflective, structured dialogue methods of national non-profit Essential Partners with St. Ignatius of Loyola’s teachings of discernment and reflection.
