The Journey Continues

We’ve been doing it together for almost 15 years: talking and listening with each other as friends!  A Reform Rabbi, a Suni Imam, and a Congregational (UCC) Minister.  It has been a journey of ever deepening friendship and respect.  When you are friends first, then even when you disagree, you’re still friends.  It’s a model of interfaith relationship we believe is essential for people of faith, and those who claim no faith community at all.
