Only the smallest part of humanity wishes and acts upon the destruction of others. The pluralists are far larger. Those of us who believe in a world where we live together, we're far larger. The problem is we haven't made our case compelling across the world yet. — Eboo Patel, founder, Interfaith Youth Core
In eight, sequential 90-minute workshops, A Chorus of Faiths guides high school-age youth to plan and lead an interfaith service event in their local community. The program engages youth to explore religious pluralism, learn why it matters to Unitarian Universalists, and develop the understandings and skills to do interfaith work.
As inheritors of a tradition with a longstanding commitment to religious tolerance and pluralism, Unitarian Universalist youth are well poised to become interfaith leaders. Our forebears were present at the World's Parliament for Religions in 1893 and marched in the religiously diverse trenches of the Civil Rights Movement. Today, Unitarian Universalists join in many interfaith service and justice partnerships. Youth deepen their Unitarian Universalist identity and faith as they discover our rich history of interfaith effort and learn practical leadership and organizing skills such as dialogue facilitation, storytelling to build understanding, and planning a service action with diverse community partners.
