Interfaith as a Faith--A Way to Move Past Preaching about Love and Compassion to Actually Practicing Them
"A commitment to Interfaith is no small commitment. Nor is it an easy commitment. But I do believe it can be a rewarding and healing one. Interfaith widens our world. And, if we let it, Interfaith frees us from the imprisoning shackles of one of the most debilitating of all human emotions--fear of the 'other.'"
--from Chapter 6
The interfaith movement is taking root. More and more of us are exploring it. At the same time interfaith finds itself at a crossroads. Where do we go now?
Rev. Steven Greenebaum not only suggests the faith of Interfaith as a positive way forward but also offers a practical, down-to-earth approach to a more spiritually fulfilling life. In this accessible how-to guide, Greenebaum addresses:
- What it means to practice Interfaith as a faith and why you might want to embrace it.
- Why you can choose Interfaith as a faith and still keep your own spiritual tradition.
- How to establish the necessary foundations to start an Interfaith spiritual community.
- How to choose the right minister for your Interfaith community.

- And much, much more.
