Converging Streams began as a series of Interfaith radio programs that were initially produced by the Muncie Interfaith Fellowship and The Unitarian Universalist Church of Muncie between 2004 and 2005; we have since moved our program online and occasionally will introduce new topics. The goal of the program is to promote dialogue and ultimately understanding among the diverse faith traditions within the Muncie and greater East Central community, with Rev. George Wolfe of the Muncie Interfaith Fellowship and Rev. Thomas Perchlik, formerly minister of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Muncie sharing hosting duties. Show topics have included the creation stories of the major world religions, meaning of the National Day of Prayer, understanding Islam, the power of dialogue, interfaith tolerance as expressed in historical religious fiction, the Universalist Story, and the Bahai tradition.
