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.

This year, Texas Public Radio is promoting the idea of open, engaged listening as a way to change the tenor of our times. The campaign is called Dare To Listen, and you can learn more about it online at http://idaretolisten.org and “take the dare” while you’re there. Many people have already done so, and one of the first questions they ask us is “Well, what now? What do I do next?”
