The Faith Club

Posted Friday, November 9, 2007

Three mothers -- a Christian, a Jew and a Muslim -- joined together to write a children's book about faith connections. Their heated debates and discussions led to a book ... and a movement. The Faith Club is inspiring women around the country to form groups to meet for open and honest dialogues about religion. Women everywhere are discovering the core values that connect all faiths ... and exploring the myths and misunderstandings that divide them. Cutting through cultural and faith stereotypes ... Friday at nine on The Sound of Ideas.



Ranya Idliby, Suzanne Oliver and Priscilla Warner, authors of the book, "The Faith Club: A Muslim, A Christian, A Jew-- Three Women Search for Understanding"
Julia Shearson, director of the Cleveland office of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR)
Sister Pat Harvat of the Office of Hispanic Ministries, Catholic Diocese of Cleveland
Sandra Schwartz, former director of the National Conference for Community and Justice (NCCJ)
