BETHANY BEYOND THE JORDAN, Jordan (Reuters) – Only five years ago, critical remarks by Pope Benedict about Islam sparked off violent protests in several Muslim countries.
Never very good, relations between the world’s two largest religions sank to new lows in modern times.
This week, while protesters in the Arab world were demanding democracy and civil rights, Catholics and Muslims met along the Jordan River…Continue

I was on a chartered bus with about 40 other people—Christians, Jews, Muslims, Unitarian Universalists, one Buddhist, and one Wiccan priest. We were united in being people of faith, in being mostly white and middle class, and in touring part of Newark, New Jersey as part of the Environmental Justice retreat of GreenFaith’s Fellowship Program.
I already knew that low-income communities and communities of color are…Continue

There are two main types of bombs which release energy from the nuclei of atoms.
The simplest kind is an atomic bomb. Like a nuclear power plant, it releases great quantities of energy through a process called nuclear fission, or 'splitting', of a large unstable (radioactive) element like uranium or plutonium.
A more complicated type is the hydrogen bomb, or thermonuclear bomb, which releases an even greater quantity of energy through nuclear fusion, a process which has not yet…

The large Sikh men with long white beards pounded the drums. Sikh men with red, blue, and orange colored turbans sat cross-legged in all corners of the sanctuary. Women dressed in bold blue, green, and purple Punjabi suits sat consumed in prayer. As I sat on the red carpet among the 300-400…

It is conference world. Discussion in the high level with result or without result requires huge arrangements and investments. Now, we lives in the web world – able to minimize everything – if so why can not think of web conference along with that or as an alternative.

It is my desire and hope conference type of…Continue

from the Interfaith Observer
The 1993 Parliament was a watershed event in interfaith history, following in the footsteps of the first Parliament in 1893. Both events forged new ground and introduced new interfaith possibilities. In addition to making history, the 1993 Parliament transformed my life.

Robin Hood is an archetypal hero; “steal from the rich and
give to the poor”, in today’s age it has become steal from the poor and keep
it. George Washington is one as well, “I can't tell a lie” was his answer when he cut down the cheery tree;
today officials seem to think lying is just part of what you have to do. “Do
unto others as you would have them do unto you” has become do unto others
before they do unto you. I went to a recent Occupy Wall street meeting…
