Inspiring Stories: Raising Kids in Interfaith Families

June 15, 2022 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Inspiring Stories: Raising Kids in Interfaith Families

Raising Kids in Interfaith Families  

With interfaith marriage on the rise in the United States and other countries, we continue a four-part series exploring the experiences of interfaith families. In this second session, we focus on families that have chosen to raise their kids in two or more spiritual traditions.

Our Keynote Storytellers will share their own experiences and insights. Through these family stories, they’ll shine a light on this growing trend’s past, present, and future.

Future sessions will explore:
Generational perspectives on interfaith families
Inter-sect marriage (e.g.Sunni/Shia, Orthodox/Conservative, Protestant/Catholic…) 

Inspiring Stories is a virtual collaboration between The Guibord Center – Religion Inside Out, an interfaith organization dedicated to opening hearts and minds, and IslamiCity, a global Muslim e-community. We hope that these conversations serve as a model of spiritual and interreligious engagement and mutual enrichment to unite our communities in faith and hope for a better world.
