Building Peace through Faith Civil(ish)

    • Society & Culture

Building peace through faith seems like a pretty tall order but that is exactly what Tasneem Noor is doing.  Wait...faith?  Isn't that people fight about?  Does it have to be that way?  

In this episode, we define faith (it takes me a while to get it) and explore what that means to each person and how faith can be the foundation for peace.  I'm still mulling over this conversation!

Tasneem Noor is the award-winning author of the best-seller The Faith Connection: Your Journey Starts with Knowing Yourself; and the founder of Noor Enterprises: SOULful Transformations. She is committed to having, and facilitating, courageous conversations over differences. Tasneem has trained over 200 community leaders through 9 month long conflict transformational programs for healthy relations, productive engagement and social change. As a leadership coach, Tasneem helps her clients to build their teams and communities' capacity for authentic engagement, explore diversity, dismantle stereotypes, and create lasting partnerships. The Inter-religious Council of Southern CA recognized Tasneem as an emerging faith leader and she is serving as the interfaith-minister-in-residence for the Episcopalian Diocese of Southern CA.
