Religion Brings People Together
By Ramah Kudaimi
September 30, 2005

Response to Chicago Tribune's "3 Major Faiths Mark Overlapping October Holidays"

The growing commitment of religious leaders to capitalize on their traditions and holidays as a form of outreach to other faith groups is a wonderful example of the good that comes out of religion (“3 major faiths mark overlapping October holidays,” Sept. 30).

During a time when religion is blamed by many for the problems we are enduring, these communities choosing to use their religious beliefs as a means to connect to fellow humans prove that the role of religion is unlimited. The overlapping of holidays will hopefully force all people to realize that their religious traditions have a lot more in common than expected.

Thanks to the Chicago Tribune for choosing to cover this great occurrence.
