Having Bob Chase as a guest in my course on ecumenism proved to be a great opportunity to launch the conversation on how ecumenical engagement expands to include interfaith dialogue and relationship building. Bob’s decade long experience with Intersections provided a rich context for our class to explore the many possibilities that are at hand for deepening understanding and creating much needed interfaith partnerships and alliances. The classroom dialogue was particularly enhanced by his reflections in “Beyond the Comma,” on the tenth anniversary of the tragedy of September 11, 2001. Videos that Bob produced in support of year long interfaith initiatives sparked by that anniversary – “We the People” and ‘shadows,” served to further enrich our learning. I have no doubt that our conversation with Bob will enhance the capacity of our students to engage the interfaith realities of our times with insight and creativity.
