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. They will discuss the human and ethical values they share with one another and explain 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 illustrates the possibility, and indeed the necessity, for diverse religions to join together in a common effort for a more harmonious and peaceful world, as well as a concern of crucial importance to a world where people of different backgrounds, cultures, and religions increasingly live and work together.

This panel will take place via webinar for a senior residence in Seattle. There will be ample time for Q & A and discussion with the panelists: Ishaq Pathan (Facilitator), Wesley Mukoyama (Buddhist), Joy Aspenall (Christian), Lakshmi Subramanian (Hindu), David Marshak (Jew), and Sobia Sultan (Muslim).
