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.
Marcus Braybrooke, agent for the Interfaith Observer in Asia, writes: Living in a multi-religious society is still a new experience for many people in Europe and America, but in Asia members of one faith community have traditionally coexisted in the same geographical space with those of others. Crossing boundaries – for example, marrying a member of another community – could result in social ostracism. At times, sharp controversy and, sadly, horrific violence has been suffered, as when India was partitioned. At other times, for centuries in millions of villages and town, neighbors from different traditions have gotten on well, been friends, and even enjoyed some practical cooperation.
