What to say...

The local library has a series they call "Fireside Lectures". LAst year I gave one on nature and spirituality.

THis fall I have been invited to do a talk on inter-faith issues. THus far I have a title: That All May Be One? with the subtitle Living in a Multi-Faith World.

But that is about it. I have some general ideas that largely involve talking against the sentiment in the title. And I will talk about issues such as the Lord's Prayer in school/government settings. And I will certainly point out that true multi-faith means allowing the presence of many, not denying the presence of any.

Any ideas???


  1. You might have a look at Rachel Barenblat's thoughtful celebration of the All Nations Cafe in Israel:http://velveteenrabbi.blogs.

  2. When I am involved in presentations or series on interfaith issues, hospitality is usually a major theme.
