Notes

The Religious OtherJoin us on The Front Porch for the second edition of Art and the Other, which tackles the sensitive topic of “The Religious Other.”

As part of this five part series in the season of Lent at All Saints’ Episcopal Church, we will watch and discuss selected cuts from a documentary by artist and filmmaker Robin Rucker that tells the story of the pilgrimage to Chimayo, New Mexico, trod by thousands each year.

Perhaps this image of path or pilgrimage sheds much light on our struggle to live with difference without violence. More than mere tolerance is needed for the journey.

Along with Robin, panelists for this conversation include John Burnett, national religion correspondent for NPR, and Frank Richardson, UT professor, who writes about psychology and religion.
