Faith

Dialogue

We provide opportunities for multi-denominational and interfaith dialogue that fosters constructive and positive interaction. Through on-site programs, Grace Farms brings individuals together to build empathy across lines of religious difference and pursue the common good within our diverse community. Recent offerings have included an Interfaith Seder co-hosted with the Interfaith Council of Southwestern Connecticut.

Flourishing

Grace Farms is a place for people to contemplate questions about the meaning of life and consider how to best live in the contemporary world. In 2017, we collaborated with the Yale Center for Faith & Culture (YCFC) to offer the “Life Worth Living” course, under the direction of Dr. Miroslav Volf, Professor of Theology at Yale and Grace Farms Foundation Board Member. The course engaged 25 individuals from a diverse range of philosophical and religious traditions to help them reflect upon values, purpose, and meaning as it related to their own lives. Mindfulness retreats and classes in partnership with the Copper Beech Institute have also been instrumental in guiding individuals in the development of practices that foster joy, resilience, and healing.
