Over 500 people of different cultures, ages, countries and faith backgrounds congregated at Nazareth College for the first annual international Interfaith Understanding Conference, or IUC. Throughout the course of the three day conference from April 11-13 students from Rochester to Afghanistan gathered to discuss issues that are plagued by cultural misunderstanding and religious misconceptions.
During his opening statement, Nazareth College’s President Daan Braveman recognized the conference as being integral to positively sharing religion.
‘[We want] a world where religious differences is not seen as the cause of wars, rather that religious difference is seen as a great strength,” Braveman said. ‘That is the goal of this conference.”
