Local Story: Elizabeth Harlan-Ferlo

In partnership with Oregon Humanities, the Washington County Museum hosts a facilitated conversation exploring religious difference in Oregon. Writer and former chaplain Elizabeth Harlan-Ferlo will lead participants in examining the tools we use to talk about religion without dismissing others’ beliefs or flattening the beautiful and sometimes harrowing complexities of our experiences. Elizabeth has created extensive curricula on religion and intercultural competency and served for nine years as an Episcopal school lay chaplain. She is trained in facilitation for community, conflict, and collaboration with a creative arts focus.
