The Episcopal Church and the Diocese of Washington are called to build ecumenical and interfaith partnerships wherever possible for God’s mission of reconciling and healing the whole creation. Consult these resources to learn more and participate in this work:
- "Why We Should Seek Interfaith Relations." A sermon by the Rev. Dr. Carol Flett, interreligious officer, Episcopal Diocese of Washington
- Ecumenical and interfaith resources from The Episcopal Church
- Toward Our Mutual Flourishing: The Theological Statement on Interreligious Relations (text and study guide) from The Episcopal Church
At its 2016 convention, the diocese passed a resolution calling upon its parishes and schools “to provide educational programs on Islam including inviting a Muslim faith leader to speak and discuss how to address prejudice and intolerance of Muslims,” and urged parishes, schools and members of the diocese to “advocate for the civil rights and safety of Muslims.”
The Rev. Carol Flett, interreligious officer in the Diocese of Washington, has prepared guidelines for initiating local interfaith relationships.
