Learning and Dialogue

Although faith is a fundamentally private matter, religious practice is a highly social activity, deeply intertwined with friendships, family and other community relationships. Religion and faith bring moral and practical structure to people’s lives in the community with others. Faith institutions also provide spiritual, psycho-social and practical, tangible support on matters essential for health and well-being. Because of the highly visible and social nature of a lived faith, people have good reason to fear social sanction if and when they question the practices of their faith communities. This fear of social sanction sometimes inhibits or constrains learning, development and critical thinking. As a result, harmful assumptions, traditions and practices can easily be misunderstood as based on sacred texts or religious beliefs and be passed from generation to generation unexamined.The Faith to Action Network works to create safe spaces where people of faith, religious leaders and religious institutions can explore the root causes of intra- and inter-faith tensions that hinder family health and well-being, women’s rights and gender justice and peaceful, just and inclusive communities.

About us

We mobilize faith actors for interfaith dialogue and collaboration to advance family health and well-being; women’s rights and gender justice; and peaceful, just and inclusive communities, consistent with one’s faith.

Faith to Action Network
Faith to Action Network3 weeks ago
As part of global commemoration of the World Inter harmony week, through the JISRA programme, our member Muhammadiyah brings together young people from different faith formations to act for the environment. Another example that religion is a great builder of bridges.

For Ahsan Hamidi an activist with Eco Bhinneka, the chance for people with various religious backgrounds to meet, discuss, and work together while caring for the environment allows clarity and progress where there are differences that have arisen on the basis of prejudice”. What is your story of inter faith harmony this week?

Share with us and we shall share it with the world.
