How do different religions view the beliefs and practices of other traditions? Is adherence to one religious tradition compatible with respect for the many other religious traditions and convictions in our world? In this panel discussion, representatives of major world religions will begin with a brief overview of their beliefs and practices before addressing these questions and explaining how each of their traditions is able to adhere to its convictions while taking a positive and respectful stance toward the diverse beliefs of others.

This panel addresses a concern of crucial importance to a world where people of different backgrounds, cultures, and religions increasingly live and work together.

This panel will occur for a group of volunteer trainees at the Bill Wilson Center. There will be ample time for Q & A and discussion with the panelists: Noni Azhar (Facilitator), Tenzin Chogkyi (Buddhist), George Anne McDonnell (Christian), Madhu Kopalle (Hindu), Bat Sheva Miller (Jew), and Ismael Nass-Duce (Muslim).
