Interfaith Dialogue in Medicine


A moral crisis has swept through the United States dividing social, political, and religious organizations with corrupt and ineffectual leadership. However, the present moral crisis has its roots in the technological and cultural shifts of the last half century. The goal of interfaith dialogue is not merely to exchange pleasantries, but to build a mutual collaboration addressing the moral and ethical issues with a unified voice. Interfaith dialogue has the potential to pull us out of our individualism and, in focusing on our relationships, create a new sensibility about being human. And were that new sensibility understood to reflect some of the fundamentals of science, it would strengthen the ability of religions to pursue a more healing inclusivity and reveal a rich unity among religious faiths, stretching down from our personal relationships with each other to the divine and the very fabric of reality.
