Fostering Dialogue

January 23, 2006

Here is an article about a group that is attempting to spark dialogue between different religious groups: Salt Lake Tribune - Faith. Here are a couple of highlights:

"It's main goal is more and better talking."

"Such dialogues require a few ground rules: Speakers must be honest in their feelings but not offend or take offense at what others say about them, even the suggestion that their religion is inferior. Participants agree to keep the proceedings confidential so everyone can speak openly. If anyone becomes uncontrollably angry, the discussion must end immediately. Other than that, anything goes."


It would be great to see more of this type of dialogue!
