Each faith's guidance regarding how to deal with conflict and/or advance peace. Distinct from non-negotiable principles which may have no impact on living in the world community, does the religion embrace principles with which other religions may not agree & which may impact the lives of those "others?" If so, how does the faith guide its followers to manage those principles when interacting with the larger community?

In a world torn apart by religious misunderstanding, the goal of the Interfaith Forums is to provide an experience where people can hear different religions' perspectives in an environment of mutual respect. It is a time and place to hear and be heard. In the course of nearly two decades, the forums have helped forge strong relationships between members of Southern Nevada's diverse religious communities.
