Center For Interfaith Projects
     Promoting Understanding and Respecting Differences

Home

Welcome!  We're glad you found our website.  On this site, you will find information about our organization, our goals, and upcoming interfaith events in the Fargo-Moorhead area.

Our vision: A community in which strangers become--through respectful dialogue-- friends, seek to understand each others' religious/spiritual world views or secular viewpoint, and, on the basis of shared values, work together on projects beneficial to the whole community.

We agree with St Olaf Professor Anantanand Rambachan (HIndu) that people from different traditions can "learn to trust one another and to accept the 'otherness' of the other . . . and see religious diversity not as a problem to be solved or as a threat to defend oneself against but as an opportunity for mutual enrichment, self-understanding, and friendship."  

We take this a step further by inviting those who are not religious to participate in dialogue and work with members of religious communities to work for a common good. We in fact have a humanist/atheist on our board of directors. The idea is to expand the conversation--to make it as inclusive as possible.

If you share our vision, please join with us to work to realize it.

We welcome your ideas for interfaith projects.

Thanks!  Together we can promote understanding and respect differences.
