In this lesson we learn about ecumenical and interfaith movements. These movements are designed to respect each individual religion yet develope ways in which they can coexist in peace and respect.

It also touches on the need for interfaith ministers because of growing interfaith practice. For example, a Catholic who uses Chinese meditation. Or perhaps two people of different religions who marry and incorporate parts of both religions in their daily lives. These type of situations require ministers who are able to grasp a wide variety of religions and help people keep their own faith while coexisting with people of different faiths.

Thank you for posting. The diversity and tolerance you mention seems like it would promote personal growth as well as growth as a community.

Maybe these same qualities can be found in good or great leaders.

It would be a great foundation for Chaplains too?

I'm taking this course as part of the Chaplaincy program, so yes I agree. As we become more of a global community, I believe it's to the advantage of all to understand different religions as well as cultures.
