Williamstown: Williams College to host Interfaith Conference


Williams College will host an Interfaith Conference Friday through Sunday, April 15 to 17, around the topic of "Forgiving the Unforgiveable."

The conference will include two keynote lectures.

Audri Scott Williams will speak at 2:30 p.m. Saturday, April 16, in Griffin Hall, room 3. Bishop Gene Robinson will speak at 11:30 a.m. Sunday, April 17, in Thompson Memorial Chapel. Both lectures are free and open to the public.

Williams, a World Peace Walker in the Red Flame for Freedom movement, will discuss the motivation, experience and impact of her global walks for peace and to specifically address her struggle with the transgenerational suffering she grappled with along the way.

Robinson served as an openly gay priest in the Episcopal tradition for over 30 years. He is also the subject of two documentary films: "Love Free or Die: How the Bishop of New Hampshire is Changing the World" and "For the Bible Tells Me So."
