We meet on the third Tuesday of every month for fellowship, and then have a special program. The individual, interfaith relationships that develop as well as the opportunity to learn about and appreciate the religious orientations of others are very valuable. There has been a constant effort by active members to make the URI cause known to the community through a variety of contacts. We emphasize the search to understand the similarities and differences between other religions and one's own, especially in terms of the distinctions between eternal beliefs vs. cultural beliefs as well as the essence of a religion vs. erroneous expressions of the religion. We also coordinate monthly mailings to promote our next meeting, summarize the last meeting and announce related news. After five years of monthly meetings which featured guest presenters from various faiths, members now promote URI among other area groups and send newsletters when appropriate.
