Interfaith Dialogue in Liberia

"The Analyst", a Monrovian newspaper has a great article about an interfaith dialogue for youth in this war-torn African nation. The opening paragraph of the article is below:

A two-day interdenominational youth workshop organized by the Better Future Foundation (BFF), a local non-governmental organization, under the theme Creating Inter-faith Dialogue for Harmonious Community Living ended last Sunday with a youth resolution.

About 50 youth between the ages of 15 and 30 professing Baha'i, Christian and Islamic faiths participated in the two-day workshop held at the New Hope Academy on Peace Island in Paynesville outside Monrovia on April 22 - 23, 2006.(Read the entire article here)

Baha'is have supported the interfaith movement since its inception and will continue to do so. Ultimately the religious crisis facing humanity at this stage of development will only be resolved when the truth that God is one and beyond all human interpretation and cultural expression, religion is also one, operates at the heart of religious discourse.
