Muncie Interfaith Fellowship CC

Label: Cooperation Circle Info

23 Members

Traditions: Buddhist, Christian, Hindu, Jewish See All

Action Area: Interfaith and Intercultural Understanding and Dialogue

Region: North America

Label: Purpose & Activities

Our purpose is to foster understanding between religious faiths and serve as an opportunity for people from different religious traditions to share and appreciate each other's teachings while working together for the good of the Muncie community.

The Muncie Interfaith Fellowship is an existing group that has been going strong for a number of years. In addition to a monthly dialogue group that attracts a core of 10-20 people, we hold larger public interfaith events drawing hundreds of people, such as 9/11 commemorative services, Thanksgiving events, interfaith dinners, events honoring the International Day of Peace, and fundraisers for the local food pantry. We try to get two people from each tradition to represent the fellowship in their own places of worship, and to be a liaison. We have a weekly radio show on a local station. Archives are available at www.bsu.edu/cpcs/fellowship.htm.

Our dream is to demonstrate that people from different religious traditions can learn from each other and work together for the good of the community.

Extremism, not Islam, Is the Enemy

The various forms of extremist views, be they religious or secular, are rooted in fear and the inability to accept people who are different from ourselves. Extremist ideologies help us justify our fears.
