Have you run into Eboo Patel’s book Acts of Faith? I was very excited to hear that it is a common reading for many colleges and universities including Franklin College in my home state of Indiana.
Eboo presents a case for interfaith service… if we look at the many world conflicts then we will see a root cause as a difference of religion. Where can we find common ground amongst religions? Service. Service is one thing that religions agree about! Could service be a strategy towards world peace?
Eboo has ignited a student movement for interfaith service called the Interfaith Youth Core (IFYC). Check out more details here.
IFYC has also provided leadership for The President’s Interfaith and Community Service Campus Challenge.
