Interreligious Dialogue Site

I wanted to let Baha'i Thought readers know about another initiative that you might wish to support. An on-line journal dedicated to inter-religious dialogue is getting underway and now has its own website. You can visit the site here. Here's some info about the initiative:

"The Journal of Inter-Religious Dialogue™ is a forum for academic, social, and timely issues affecting religious communities around the world. It is designed to increase the quality and frequency of interchanges between religious groups and their leaders. The Journal seeks to build an inter-religious community of scholars, in which people of different traditions learn from one another and work together for the common good."

Sounds good to me!

"O Thou kind Lord! Unite all. Let the religions agree and make the nations one, so that they may see each other as one family and the whole earth as one home. May they all live together in perfect harmony." (Abdu'l-Baha, The Promulgation of Universal Peace, p. 100)
