I believe that incorporating musical contributions from diverse faiths is a key approach to cultivating unity.
We live in a world where we have the privilege to encounter a plurality of faiths, and this requires interfaith collaboration. Conflicts between adherents of different faiths remain pervasive worldwide, and religion can be a powerful factor in the struggle for peace and reconciliation. To engage communities in successful dialogue leaders and organizations are seeking creative approaches to improve interfaith relationships and understanding.
I believe that incorporating musical contributions from diverse faiths is a key approach to cultivating unity. Interfaith music has the potential to convey fresh dimensions of understanding, to address interfaith social concerns; to create a dialogue of common experience, to raise up an individual within the context of a tradition, and to display artistically, intellectually, emotionally and spiritually the potential of interfaith collaboration to help build peaceful co-existence.
Through collaborative performance, teaching, and creation, we discover the love and truths that bind us together.
