BRIDGES from Bulgaria, EUROPE
“Bridges” is a non-government and over-confessional organization, which will bring together people of faith from different religious traditions represented in Bulgaria. The main goal of a forum is to be a platform for dialogue for the Christian denominations and on the other hand - to present and to popularize the peaceful model of co-existence between Orthodox Christianity and Islam in our country.
THE INTERFAITH OBSERVER ( TIO) in MULTIREGION
The Interfaith Observer, launched on September 15, 2011, is a monthly electronic journal created to explore interfaith culture locally and globally. It will provide historical perspectives, survey current interreligious news, and otherwise provide maps and sign-posts for newcomers. It will offer a context to explore and respond to the unique diversity and close proximity of religious, spiritual people today. The Observer will be a resource for general readers… anyone interested in the subject; but articles will be filled with references and links for those who wish to pursue a particular subject. Along with examining our spiritual and religious differences, the journal will inquire into shared core values, survey religious news, offer various perspectives on the unparalleled religious diversity enveloping humankind, reflect on theological and spiritual issues, and perhaps develop a social network for interfaith activists focused on service. A long-term goal is to help grow connective tissue between large interfaith ventures and stakeholders and the rest of us. We will promote the major institutional players. And provide space for the creative little guys all over the map who are doing wonderful new things.
