Following Jesus Across Religious and Cultural Boundaries

Understanding what worship, fasting, prayer and charity mean in other faith traditions can uncover opportunities to collaborate in building the reign of God on Earth. Understanding builds relationships, reveals what is beautiful in the lives of our spiritual neighbors, and enables a profound sharing as we live out our spiritual convictions in deeds of compassion and mutuality, says Scott Alexander, director of Catholic-Muslim studies at Catholic Theological Union in Chicago. In a 5 1/2-minute video reflection housed on the website of The Valparaiso Project on the Education and Formation of People in Faith, Alexander reflects on interreligious dialogue as the practice of following Christ across religious and cultural boundaries. The Valparaiso Project is an initiative that promotes 12 key Christian practices that embody the wisdom of Christian faith as a way to feed the spiritual hunger of contemporary seekers. A downloadable PDF-formatted discussion guide accompanies the video.
