The world is once again being fragmented by fearful, angry politics and warfare, and religion is often in the mix in dangerous and destructive ways.
Even so, we are seeing a resurgence of people reaching out with hands and hearts across the supposed boundaries of their faiths—as if these faiths were simply different extended families in one united race of all beings.
During March and April, we invite our readers to share their stories of such reaching out, such interfaith action to restore and sustain safety and justice among their neighbors.
These stories may be about broad-based regional or global efforts, about efforts within a local community, or about personal experiences of interaction with other people. The common thread is the mutual determination to understand, support and embrace each other across boundaries of faith.
