Healing Divides, Enriching Understanding: Interfaith Movements
An untold number of interfaith and intrafaith initiatives respond to the violence and uneasy tensions of our times. Especially where conflicts touch on religious identities or where leaders fuel fires with aspersions of “others,” these efforts aim to confront root causes of tensions that touch on religious beliefs and practices. At their best, with careful, persistent work, interfaith efforts address deep differences and wounded memories in sensitive but effective ways. A World Faiths Development Dialogue report supported by the GHR Foundation explored the history of interfaith work and ideas and theories that inspire it. Panelists discussed the report as they explore future directions for the work and institutions involved.
