The Interfaith Amigos Pastor Don Mackenzie, Rabbi Ted Falcon and Imam Jamal Rahman started working together after 9/11. Since then, they have brought their unique blend of spiritual wisdom and humor to audiences in the U.S., Canada, Israel-Palestine, and Japan.
With their willingness to openly address the usual taboos of interfaith dialogue the awkward parts of each tradition they create a more authentic conversation, between themselves and with their audiences, giving people an opportunity to step more fully into the rich promise of the interfaith experience.
In a presentation entitled, "Interfaith Dialogue for Challenging Times, the Interfaith Amigos share some of the promises as well as the problems related to developing an interfaith dialogue that can support collaborative action in our world. With warmth, humor, and wisdom, these three teachers guide an interfaith process that opens their audiences to spiritual treasures which support healing and wholeness.
Their first book, Getting to the Heart of Interfaith (Skylight Paths, 2009), brought them international attention, including coverage by the New York Times, CBS News, the BBC, and various NPR programs. Karen Armstrong calls their exuberant and courageous second book, Religion Gone Astray: What We Found at the Heart of Interfaith (Skylight Paths, 2011), an inspiration for all of us in these sadly polarized times. Their third book, Finding Peace through Spiritual Practice (Skylight Paths, 2016), looks at the specific issues we face in a pluralistic society and the spiritual practices that can help us transcend the roadblocks to effective collaboration on the critical issues of our time.
Unity in Lynnwood is an open and affirming, diverse spiritual community of those from different spiritual traditions and others from no spiritual tradition whatsoever. UIL teaches that while we explore and experience the Divine through the unique lenses of religion, the Divine which we explore and experience is One.
