Council for a Parliament of the World's Religions

First held in 1893 and every 5 years since 1993, the Parliament of the World's Religions 2009 was a gathering of approximately 5,000 people of faith and other interested people of goodwill meeting in Melbourne from December 3rd - December 10th. 

As a premier partner, Patheos.com sent our founders to the event.

Within the context of the overall Parliament, Leo the chance to talk to a lot of people. A dozen or so of them he spoke to on camera - and asked them the same 4 questions:

  • What does it mean to be a ______ in today's world?
  • With the "shrinking" of the world through technology, how does that impact you and your tradition?
  • When you interact with others, from different traditions, what aspects of your tradition do they find it easiest to understand or accept - and what aspects to they find it more difficult to understand or accept?
  • What do you hope comes out of gatherings like this one in Melbourne?
