Learning Objectives, Workshop 5: Difficulties of Interfaith Work
In "A Chorus of Faiths," a Tapestry of Faith program
- Prepare to handle challenges and disappointments in doing interfaith service work, with an understanding that it is both possible and valuable to work with others whose beliefs seem "wrong" to us
- Learn to recognize and avoid making value judgments about other's beliefs, through exploring how describing another's belief as a "myth" is a value judgment
- Tell stories about their own lives and commitments, including "my interfaith story"
- Review (from Workshop 1) three components of a religiously pluralistic community: respect for religious identity, mutually inspiring relationships, and common action for the common good.
This work is made possible by the generosity of individual donors and congregations. Please consider making a donation today.
