Religions and cultures differ, but all the major world religions share key values. In this panel discussion, representatives of major world religions will offer a brief overview of their beliefs and practices and discuss the human and ethical values they share with one another. 

Through this discussion they will demonstrate that, despite profound differences of belief and practice, all their traditions promote common values that are vitally important today.

This panel illustrates the possibility, and indeed the necessity, for diverse religions to join together in a common effort for a more harmonious and peaceful world.

This panel will present for a staff training class on “Understanding Religious Beliefs and Believers” for the department of Diversity and Inclusion at UCSC (Santa Cruz). There will be ample time for Q & A and discussion with the panelists: Laurie Schlaepfer (facilitator), Tenzin Chogkyi (Buddhist), Henry Millstein (Christian), Dr. Sulochina Lulla (Hindu), Harry Cornbleet (Jewish), and ING Executive Director (Muslim).
