Interfaith Forum – How My Faith Tradition Works with Other Traditions to Heal the World
October 22 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Beginning in the late 1800s there has been a steady growth in relationships between religions that have had historic disagreements, with an ever-expanding recognition that religions have a central role in healing the conflicts and misunderstandings that have resulted in worldwide violence, displacement and inequality. Panelists will share what their traditions are doing to solve problems and advance the processes of reconciliation and peace.

About the Interfaith Forums
In a world torn apart by religious misunderstanding, the goal of the Interfaith Forums is to provide an experience where people can hear different religions’ perspectives in an environment of mutual respect. It is a time and place to hear and be heard. In the course of nearly two decades, the forums have helped forge strong relationships between members of Southern Nevada’s diverse religious communities.
The forums are followed by a time for socializing and refreshments provided by the host congregation.
All forums are open to the public at no cost.
