Dare To Listen: Three Wise Guys & A Gal

ThreeWiseGuys_event.JPG

Differences between religious beliefs are often all too apparent. But what can people of different faiths agree on? What ideas might bring them together?
 
In this hour-long conversation, four San Antonio faith leaders share their experiences finding common purpose with people outside of their own religions. A local rabbi, priest, imam and pastor discuss challenges to interfaith dialogue, explain why it's important to their ministry and point to San Antonio issues that a multi-faith coalition could help solve. 

 
Panelists:

  • Rev. Otis Mitchell, Mount Zion Baptist Church
  • Rabbi Mara Nathan, Temple Beth-El
  • Father Dennis Aréchiga, St. Matthew Catholic Church
  • Imam Beytullah Çolak, Islamic Institute SW, San Antonio

Moderator: Aaron Schrank, TPR
