In Good Faith : Conversations at the Crossroads

Hosted by Rev. Dr. Ahriana, In Good Faith is a media-based effort involving more than a dozen faith leaders and religious educators, and grounded in a commitment to dialogue that aims at more than mere agreement. It embodies a process of respectful speaking and active listening in equal parts. .

The phrase In Good Faith, which is the shared title of all programming, was chosen as a reminder that each and every activity or discussion is entered into in an authentic, honest and open manner.  Participants in a conversation that is held “in good faith” agree to come to the proverbial table prepared to share in a mutually respectful discussion. We seek a deeper understanding of spirituality, religion, and the common concerns we share as human beings.

Our Goals are...

      To educate the public about various faith traditions

To demonstrate healthy interfaith conversation

And, to inspire others to engage in interfaith conversations

In its written formIn Good Faith is a column featured weekly in the Colorado Springs Independent, which is distributed for free and has "142,000 loyal readers."  In Good Faith-Conversations also airs as a one-hour podcast/radio program each week on Studio 809 Radio and iTunes.
