Interfaith in the Spotlight on KQED Radio

10 July 2017

What would the world look like if religions could work together for the common good? What gives interfaith work in the Bay Area its unusual vibrancy?

The Rt. Rev. William E. Swing, President and founder of United Religions Initiative, will talk with Michael Krasny, host of KQED Radio's Forum. Joining Reverend Swing and Michael in the conversation will be:

  • Rita Semel, member of the Board of Trustees of the Graduate Theological Union (GTU), Chair of the Interfaith Center at the Presidio and Executive Vice Chair of the San Francisco Interfaith Council;
  • Heng Sure, GTU alumnus and director of the Berkeley Buddhist Monastery; and
  • Munir Jiwa, Director and Assistant Professor at the Graduate Theological Union's Center for Islamic Studies

Listen to the program Live: Monday, August 23, 10:00 a.m. local time on KQED Radio 88.5 FM, or on-line.
