This is Real Interfaith

We’re allowed to disagree, we’re allowed to be curious, we’re allowed to have opinions, and we don’t have to be the same. We come together because we are different and we depart from each other strengthened with knowledge and a very real sense of community. [Read more…]

Twixt the Darkness and the Light

For thousands of years we have marked the turning of the seasons, the progression of light to dark and back again. As with our ancestors and all that live on this planet we attune ourselves to this endless cycle and seek to find meaning in this gift of life. We now balance on the cusp [Read More…]

Interfaith is a Two-way Street

I choose to act as a member of Women of Faith because I know that the same thing that my Muslim neighbors are experiencing now could happen to any of us. There could be a brick through my window as easily as Safaa’s and the best protection we all have is the light of understanding. [Read more…]

Commonality of Humanity

It’s amazing sometimes to sit with a retired minister of (choose your abrahamic faith).
