The group reflected on how we, as a society, are better at managing progress than at sustaining our interconnectedness. They discussed that there is an oversimplified dichotomy between science and religion, and that conversations about issues of critical concern to societies need to be as interdisciplinary and comprehensive as possible.

On November 7 at 12:00 noon VST and Iona Pacific Inter-religious Centre will remember the “Night of the Broken Glass.” During the night of November 9–10, 1938, most of Germany’s and Austria’s synagogues were attacked. Many had stood for centuries. 267 synagogues were destroyed by fires set deliberately. Over 7,000 Jewish-owned storefronts were smashed. Please join us as we bear witness to these events.

WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 7TH, 12-1 PM Chapel of the Epiphany, Vancouver School of Theology 6030 Chancellor Blvd on the UBC campus www.ionapacific.ca www.vst.edu With grateful acknowledgement for the assistance of the Vancouver Holocaust Education Centre
