IRI Public Symposium

The InterReligious Institute at Chicago Theological Seminary welcomes co-facilitators, Dr. Cassie J. E. H. Trentaz (PhD ’10), Dr. Uzma Jamil, and Michelle Lang on Wednesday, April 10, 2019, for a day of interactive learning, skill building, and artistic activism based on Trentaz’ book and film project, Love In a Time of Fear.

Pre-Symposium Community View

In advance of the symposium, all are encouraged to join the CTS community in watching the four short films which accompany the book Love In A Time Of Fear by Trentaz. The films give those being misrepresented or marginalized within our current sociopolitical climate a chance to speak for themselves. They explore the subject’s whole person rather than reducing them to a set of issues. Viewers have the opportunity to spend some time getting to know someone, that due to the divisions in our society, they might not have a chance to connect with in person.

Host a viewing party with your friends, or watch on your own before April 10. Find the Videos at
