A Multifaith Conversation (Conclusion)
As The Author says in “A Message From God” in the chapter entitled “Which Religion? Which Holy Book?”, religion is best used as a tool to develop a relationship with God. Furthermore, just as it would be counterproductive to use a single tool to build a house, it can also be counterproductive to study a single religion to develop a relationship with God. There are things that Christians can learn from Muslims, things Muslims can learn from Jews, and things all three can learn from Hindus.
Thus, we conclude the 5-part video series: Beyond The Headlines: An Interfaith Dialogue at American University, hosted by a new friend, multimedia journalist Imran Siddiqui (check out his site: www.globalcrossover.com). I simply love the idea of bringing together a Jew, a Hindu, a Muslim, a Christian and a Unitarian. The objective is simple: looking for a common ground.
In the conclusion: The panel promotes having an open minded approach to other religions, and explores the impact of continuing conflicts on future generations.
