This program is part of the Building Common Ground: Discussions of Community, Civility and Compassion initiative sponsored by the American Library Association and the Fetzer Institute.

The series is dedicated to building bridges of understanding and respect between diverse religious and ethnic entities. The “common ground” of these faiths will be explored in an effort to foster better understanding and relationships with one another without intent to convert or condemn. This series is presented in partnership with BRIDGES and the Loudoun County Public Library.
