Forgotten Margins: How do students of minority religions engage with their faith during college?
Julia Collett (Millersville University)

Research Interest Group. [Paper] The purpose of this research interest group is to understand how college students practicing minority religions are engaging with their faith during their undergraduate years. Major themes throughout the paper will explore how students are developing their religious identities and how student affairs professionals and faculty members are aiding in students’ religious identity development. This literature review analysis will explore what colleges are doing to support students of minority religions and pose solutions so that all students can feel safe to practice their faith on campus.

Deliberative Democratic Theological Education: A Proposal for Youth Ministry that Builds Peace
Elizabeth Corrie (Candler School of Theology, Emory University)

Research Interest Group. [Paper] Drawing on research in civic engagement pedagogies, insights from a youth ministry community of practice, and debates within justice-focused theological scholarship, this paper will develop a sacred pedagogy that engages theological concepts connected to histories of violence and intolerance through deliberative, democratic dialogue, teaching young people skills in engaging across difference as well as habits of theological thinking for a lifetime of spiritual growth. The paper will include both conceptual analysis and practical recommendations for curricular design.

Listening for the Sacred: A Method and Pedagogy Toward Hope
Jennifer Moe (Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary)

Research Interest Group. [Paper] Active listening and storytelling are proving to be effective practices toward generating empathy and compassion across different generations, cultures, and beliefs. In this paper I explore the methods of Holy Listening and storytelling as means used by faith communities and public agencies to create spaces where storytellers and listeners can be transformed by the simple acts of sharing and listening. Practitioners of religious education can use methods of Holy Listening and storytelling to promote learning across barriers as well as to learn more about the lives of their own faith communitie
