Given the depth and breadth of problems throughout the world, particularly those rooted in religious differences, a focus on shared values, the common universals among different faiths, and the need to come together in peace, the Interfaith Amigos assert that interfaith cooperation is important for nothing less than human survival.- George Banziger, Marietta Times
Join us in October for a very special weekend with the Interfaith Amigos. The weekend will include an opening event with the Amigos where they will share stories and reflections. On Saturday there will be 2 workshops and time for reflection. On Sunday morning we will enjoy a worship celebration with insights from all three of the Interfaith Amigos.
Imam Jamal Rahman, Pastor Don Mackenzie, and Rabbi Ted Falcon started working together after 9/11. Since then, they have brought their unique blend of spiritual wisdom and humor to audiences all over the World. The Interfaith Amigos present a crucial message in their unique humorous style, helping participants appreciate the promise and the problems of the interfaith experience. With their willingness to openly address the usual taboos of interfaith dialogue—the “awkward parts of each tradition—the Interfaith Amigos create a more authentic conversation, between themselves and with their audiences, giving people an opportunity to step more fully into the rich promise of the interfaith experience. Their work is dedicated to supporting more effective interfaith dialogue that can bring greater collaboration on the major social and economic issues of our time.
