The trip to St. Louis that James and Marilyn Reinhard established more than 40 years ago (then it was in Chicago) introduces students to three of the monotheistic faiths: Christianity, Judaism, and Islam. With an emphasis on Christianity, students are invited to expand their understanding of the Christian faith while embracing peoples who belong to other Christian traditions and faiths. This trip prods students to think more seriously about their own faith and discipleship. On this trip students are introduced to a variety of communities in the Christian faith, such as Roman Catholic and Orthodox Christians, as well as communities in the Jewish and Muslim faiths. The trip required for all GU students and is for many students the most memorable experience from their time at GU.
