Introduction, Workshop 4: It Matters What We Believe

In "A Chorus of Faiths," a Tapestry of Faith program

Our first task in approaching another people, another culture is to take off our shoes, for the place we are approaching is holy. Else we find ourselves treading on another's dream. More serious still, we may forget that God was there before our arrival. — Max Warren (1904-1977), General Secretary of the Anglican Church Missionary Council

O mankind! We created you of a male and a female, and have made you nations and tribes that ye may come to know one another. — Quran (Hujurat 49:13)

This workshop provides an opportunity to think about the practices and beliefs of other faith traditions and the Unitarian Universalist commitment to antiracism, anti-oppression and multiculturalism. Due to the sensitive nature of the topics, participants are likely to make mistakes. Help them work through these mistakes in an atmosphere of forgiveness and grace.
