Purposes

In this post 9/11 world the Synod Interfaith Relationships Committee encourages throughout the Synod an understanding of other religious faiths and promotes healthy relationships with members of other faiths.  In seeking to understand the other, Christians can find that:

  • our fear of the unknown is reduced
  • we live out the Christian practice of hospitality
  • we develop new friendships and
  • we gain greater understanding of our own faith in Jesus Christ.
