Institute of Interfaith Dialog: The IID grew
out of the need to address the question, “How can
citizens of the world live in peace and harmony?”
From this question a conversation took root and
began to grow. The founding members of the IID knew
from personal experience that a discussion on
religion and spirituality did not have to digress
into confusion, fighting, and anarchy. On the
contrary the founding members understood that peace
could be achieved by sharing different perspectives
by listening to each other from the space of love,
respect, tolerance, mercy, and compassion.
