As many people seek and strive for interfaith understanding in the areas of you own life, you might enjoy this list of interfaith principles from Ron Rolheiser, and this “interfaith minute” video interview from the Parliament of World Religions.
Dr. Brian Birch discusses how the Interfaith Movement can help address today’s critical issues, and how interfaith dialogue lends itself to strengthening one’s respective religious tradition, to discovering shared values and beliefs, and to gaining greater mutual understanding.
