Building Bridges: Welcome to Our Interfaith Video Series
When Muslims, Christians, Jews, Buddhists, Hindus — and those in other faith traditions — share what they believe and why they believe it, good things begin to occur. For example sharing breaks down the walls of misunderstanding. And this in turn leads to greater tolerance. Which in turn leads to more inclusion and acceptance.
The point of this interfaith dialogue is to cherish the universality of God’s message and to rejoice that God blesses, informs and guides each of us.
Each of the video interviews presented in this series are approximately five to six minutes or so in length. We try to capture what’s at the heart of each theology so that you’ll be exposed to some basic knowledge that will make it easier to understand other faith traditions. Hopefully from there you’ll want to dig down even further and explore the richness and depth of the varieties of different faith traditions all around us. Perhaps you’ll consider visiting their church, synagogue, mosque or temple.
