Religion Brings People Together

Response to Chicago Tribune’s “3 Major Faiths Mark Overlapping October Holidays”
The growing commitment of religious leaders to capitalize on their traditions and holidays as a form of outreach to other faith groups is a wonderful example of the good that comes out of religion (“3 major faiths mark overlapping October holidays,” Sept. 30).

During a time when religion is blamed by many for the problems we are enduring, these communities choosing to use their religious beliefs as a means to connect to fellow humans prove that the role of religion is unlimited. The overlapping of holidays will hopefully force all people to realize that their religious traditions have a lot more in common than expected.

Thanks to the Chicago Tribune for choosing to cover this great occurrence.
