Interfaith Fridays

Why should the world be moving in an interfaith direction? Nine lectures, on nine Fridays, from nine leaders in nine different faith traditions will answer that question. Moderated by the Rt. Rev. V. Gene Robinson, this lively and engaging conversation is also live-streamed on Facebook and archived at online.chq.org, so you can participate regardless of whether you are on the grounds or away.
