It all Begins with Listening
Enjoying Interfaith Friendships as a way of
practicing Open and Relational Theology
The photo shows a pre-Covid interfaith group that met on Wednesdays at the Madina Mosque in Little Rock, Arkansas in 2019. We shared stories from our lives and ideas that were important to us, under the auspices of exploring the world's religions and related themes. Along the way many of us experienced what Barbara Brown Taylor (following Krister Stendahl) calls holy envy. We began to better understand the beauty of our neighbors' ways and lives, and to be transformed by what we heard. At the same time we began to understand our own traditions as homes not boxes, and with windows wide open. A group like this continues into the present, albeit meeting through Zoom, under the auspices of the Interfaith Center of Arkansas and the Cobb Institute. If you would like to participate, email us.
