Take Action! In Faitheist, Chris Stedman writes about what it meant for him to build interfaith cooperation among his religious friends. But how do we do that when so much of the narrative we hear is about a fundamental divide between religious and nonreligious people? Whether you're an atheist, an agnostic, a Humanist, a deeply religious person, or somewhere in between, this resource can help you think about how to bridge the religious-nonreligious divide.
You've read about Chris' experiences with Interfaith Youth Core (IFYC) and how IFYC helped Chris realize that nonreligious people have an important place in interfaith work. This resource, authored by IFYC, will help you think about how you can be a part of building interfaith cooperation. It will provide you with the basics, address some frequently asked questions around interfaith work, give tips for religious and nonreligious people who want engage in interfaith work, and offer you some ideas on how to get involved in the larger interfaith movement.
