Interfaith Friendship

As promised we will be having a conversation about interfaith friendship tomorrow night (Oct. 28) at 8:00pm at Tilt Room Coffee Shop located in Castleberry Hill in downtown Atlanta (map). I'm happy to announce that we will be joined by several members of the local Muslim community. I invite you to read and/or listen to the resources below and come learn more about building friendships.

    Great conversation last night! I think it is vital to shift the emphasis from "orthodoxy" to "orthopraxy" - from dialog to action. It is in LIVING our practices out TOGETHER that we will discover commonalities in our faith. Conversation and friendships will organically form on this level ground. Just a quick Google search found this as a starting point:

    Who's game to check this out with me?
