Embracing Interfaith Cooperation

Posted by Judy Lane

Posted on March 2, 2015

Led by Rev. Ginny Curinga
Thursdays, 7-8:30 p.m., Feb. 26–Mar. 26, Room F3, Sierra Arden Church, 890 Morse Ave.

Every session stands alone, but if you missed the first session, see a short video by Eboo Patel, founder of Interfaith Youth Corps at www.ifyc.org. Patel believes that “religion is at heart a bridge of cooperation rather than a barrier of division,” both in the U.S. and around the world.

  • Feb. 26 Interfaith Cooperation in American History
  • Mar. 5: Interfaith Literacy (with Rev. Roger Jones attending)
  • Mar. 12: The Science of Interfaith Cooperation
  • Mar. 19: The Art of Interfaith Leadership
  • Mar. 26: The Role of Colleges, Seminaries, and Houses of Worship

In 1959 Dr. M. L. King made a pilgrimage to India to deepen his understanding of Mohandas K. Gandhi’s principles and was well received by Gandhian activists. Back in the states during his Palm Sunday sermon, Dr. King said: “O God, we call you — Brahma, Allah, Elohim, the Unmoved Mover.” Let us recognize the tradition of interfaith cooperation and recognize it is a key story of our American heritage. No course fee, just come!
