An Interfaith Conversation Celebrating Mutual Respect and Understanding
"Every religious tradition has grown through the ages in dialogue and historical interaction with others. Christians, Jews, and Muslims have been part of one another's histories, have shared not only villages and cities, but ideas of God and divine revelation."
--The Pluralism Project at Harvard University
