Interfaith Learning is a monthly class on religious groups, regions, and concepts led by Jeremy Fricke, Tri-Faith Initiative’s Education Director. Past topics have included the Baha’i Faith, Hinduism, Zoroastrianism, Buddhism, and Chinese Religious Culture. In this class, we explore the definition of “religion” from different perspectives and what that means in practice.
The Tri-Faith Initiative is a unique and ambitious project in the field of interfaith relations in design, scale, and scope. It brings together into permanent residency a synagogue, church, mosque, and interfaith center on one 38-acre campus in the middle of America’s heartland. By its very model it challenges people of faith and goodwill to be conscious and proactive about the assets of faith in civil life in a religiously pluralistic society. The Tri-Faith Initiative aims to create a more inclusive culture in which religious pluralism is socially normative. The Tri-Faith Initiative is made up of three Abrahamic faith groups who have chosen to be in relationship together as neighbors on one campus, committed to practicing respect, acceptance and trust. Our three members are of the Jewish, Christian, and Islamic faiths: Temple Israel, Countryside Community Church (UCC), and The American Muslim Institute.
