Interfaith Amigos to speak at Lewis Theatre
As part of its Celebrate Osteopathic Medicine (COM) Week, the West Virginia School of Osteopathic Medicine will host the Interfaith Amigos from 7 to 9 p.m., Feb. 20 at the Lewis Theatre. The event is free of charge.
Imam Jamal Rahman, Pastor Don Mackenzie and Rabbi Ted Falcon – otherwise known as the Interfaith Amigos – started working together after the Sept. 11 tragedy. Since then, they have brought their unique blend of spiritual wisdom and humor to audiences in the U.S., Canada, Israel-Palestine and Japan.
The Interfaith Amigos explore the spiritual roots of their traditions as a way toward true interfaith dialogue and collaboration, considered critical to solving the major social and economic issues of our time.
Their first book, Getting to the Heart of Interfaith (Skylight Paths, 2009), brought the Interfaith Amigos international attention with coverage from the New York Times, CBS News, the BBC and National Public Radio. Their second book is titled Religion Gone Astray: What We Found at the Heart of Interfaith (Skylight Paths, 2011).
A book signing will follow the event. A limited number of each book will be available for purchase. Books are also available via Amazon and the Barnes & Noble websites.
