Representatives from the major faith communities will gather in Geneva, Switzerland for a “Critical Moment Conference” that will address the difficulties facing interreligious relations in the globalized world.
According to the World Council of Churches, the conference will take a “hard look” at the challenges of violence and prejudice which undermine dialogue between faith communities.
Dialogue between faiths remains a high priority for the WCC, but now there is a need to move into a new phase, into a dialogue of life, society and ethics which all people struggle with,” said WCC general secretary Rev. Dr Samuel Kobia.
The Geneva conference is organized by the WCC and will involve over 120 Muslim, Jewish, Buddhist, Christian, Hindu and other religious leaders, academics, human rights activists, humanitarian workers, journalists, and people experienced in working across religious traditions. >continue~Amadeus
