Interfaith Dialogue and Working for the Good for All

René Wadlow is a member of the Fellowship of Reconciliation, a representative to the United Nations, Geneva, of the Association of World Citizens.

He authored a great piece for Fellowship of Reconciliation which gives a history of Interfaith (Inter-religious) Dialogue.

It ends with these words:  

Since 1893, interfaith discussions have increased, but many of the issues have remained the same: how to make religious thought relevant to the social-economic-political issues of the day. Can religious organizations play a useful role in the resolution of violent conflicts?

It is important to build on past efforts, but many challenges remain. These challenges call for responses from a wide range of people and groups, motivated by good will to break down barriers and to reconcile women and men within the world community.
