Interfaith

Interfaith Alliance
An activist organization, linking openminded people of many religions to foster communication and understanding among us and to protect all of our religious rights.
From the site: "The mission of The Interfaith Alliance is to promote the positive role of religion as a healing and constructive force in public life. Therefore we challenge those who manipulate religion to advance an extreme political agenda. Through our shared religious values, we seek to build a revitalized mainstream religious movement based upon active civic participation. Learn more about the positive role of religion in public life with The Interfaith Alliance Foundation."

Religious Tolerance OrganizationSPECIAL SITE
These four fine folks based in Ontario Canada are trying to present succinct factual information about as many religions as they can. Please send them friendly e-mail and support them anyway you can in their much-needed effort.

From their site: "We try to be tolerant of all religious beliefs, accurate in our writing, and inclusive: we describe all sides to each issue, from abortion to female clergy. We don't promote a specific religious viewpoint or attack anyone's beliefs. However, we do criticize actions that harm people, even if those actions are religiously motivated. We are dedicated to "liberty and justice for all" (with the exception of those engaging in criminal acts)."

Interfaith Fellowship
An actual practicing interfaith congregation in New York, the website offers educational and inspirational materials.
From their site: "Founded in September 1989 by Rev. Jon Mundy and Rev. Diane Berke, Interfaith Fellowship, located in New York City, is an alternative spiritual community of worship, celebration, healing, and service. We draw from the beauty and wisdom of a broad range of faiths, traditions and spiritual paths, and strive as a community to provide a place where everyone can feel welcomed and honored in their own unique search for the Divine."

Our database organizes this information, seeking for the common factors and universal truths that unite people of diverse cultures."

One Mind, One Voice, One Heart, One Prayer, One Life

The Prayer Vigil welcomes people of all paths of spirituality. In the circle, Christians, Jews, Muslims, Hindus, Sikhs, Bahais, Buddhists and many others share in the program.
