Dr. Azza Karam, on Religion, Dialogue and Love.
Secretary General of Religions for Peace – the largest multi-religious leadership platform with 92 national and 6 regional Inter-religious Councils.
“When people are coming together from different religions an interesting dynamic happens. First, they will spend their time speaking about how unique and different their position is from one another, but as they converse something happens. It is almost as if the spirit of the Divine is felt tangible, because it moves from ‘my religion is better than yours’ to a space of mercy. The conversation between different faiths has the potential, the capacity, the space to create an incredible mercy, to be able to see one another’s love and be merciful towards one another. That actually requires the multi religious discourses and those discourses are turning points.”
