Interfaith Minnesota is your virtual interfaith community center.
We are a strong, public community speaking up together for respect and mutual understanding between faiths. We are a sign of unity in the midst of many public conversations that are filled with fear, mistrust, and hate.
Each of us are ordinary people. Let’s get to know each other’s faces. Hear each of our stories about how we have come to care so strongly about interfaith understanding. Be inspired by reading other’s testimonials and share your own wisdom and experience. The light of truth of one person’s story can cast away much darkness.
What does it look like to build interfaith community? Check out the calendar of events featuring dialogues, service projects, worship services, holidays, and advocacy opportunities that focus on using interfaith understanding to build the common good.
The mninterfaith.org is sponsored by the Minnesota Council of Churches. This on-line interfaith community center grows out of the Council’s mission to manifest unity and build the common good.
Minnesota Council of Churches is often called on to help with the coordination of interfaith prayer services. Most notably, the Minnesota Council of Churches worked with the Governor’s office to organize prayer services after 9/11 and after the collapse of the 35W bridge.
The Minnesota Council of Churches is also part of numerous interfaith partnerships working for justice. Most notably, the Joint Religious Legislative Coalition, co-sponsored by the MN Catholic Conference, Jewish Community Relations Coucnil, and Islamic Center of Minnesota organizes the largest interfaith lobbying day in Minnesota.
Increasingly faith groups working on any issue are realizing that their work is best accomplished through interfaith partnerships. The Minnesota Council of Churches has resources for groups that are new to “thinking interfaith.”
The interfaith resources page on this website describes the lively landscape of the Minnesota interfaith community.
