Inspiring Stories: Interfaith Marriage and Families
August 17 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Interfaith Family Life Across Three Generations
How has the experience of being in an interfaith family changed (or not) across the decades and generations? Listen to stories that enlighten this microcosm of interfaith encounters in our communities.
Interfaith marriage is on the rise in the United States and other countries. We continue our four-part series exploring interfaith families. In this third session, our storytellers will share the richness and challenges of weaving interfaith family life across three generations. Through these stories, they’ll shine a light on the past, present, and future of this microcosm of interfaith encounters occurring throughout our communities.
In our final session in August 2022, we will hear stories from inter-sect marriages (e.g.,, Sunni/Shia, Orthodox/Conservative, Protestant/Catholic…), which can have many of the same conflicts and blessings as marriages between people from two distinctly different spiritual traditions.
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 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.
