Friends Talking Faith

June 20, 2017 – Faith & Culture: Tribalism – or – Pluralism

Season 10, Episode 24

Is society moving toward a more tribal attitude? This week on Friends Talking Faith with The Three Wise Guys we’ll discuss faith, tribalism, and pluralism. Tribalism is an ancient part of human civilization. For millennia humans have organized themselves into groupings for the sharing of resources, for living out common values, and for protection. But over the centuries there has been a shift to a more pluralistic and global approach to life. We have seen push-back against globalization in a number of places around the world. We’ll talk about all of it from a faith perspective. Do our faith traditions have anything to say about this tension between tribalism and pluralism? Tribalism, pluralism, and the social, political, and faith perspectives that drive them — we’ll talk about all of it on this episode of Friends Talking Faith.

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.
