Spiritual Life at Deerfield Academy 2017-2018

Jan Flaska – September 6, 2017

“The great treasure that interreligious dialogue among the world religions could unlock is to enable people to get to know and love other religions and the people who practice them. The attitude of exclusivity that has characterized religions from their beginning must be laid to rest. God is too big to be contained in one religion.” (Thomas Keating, of Contemplative Outreach; Deerfield Academy Class of 1940)
