Peaceful, neighborly living in an ever-changing, multicultural world. Does it sound good, or does it sound IMPOSSIBLE? Believe it or not, ALL our different religions don’t just say it’s possible, they ALL promise it’s inevitable, whether we all belong to the same one, or not.

Join him as he talks to the movers, shakers and leaders from all our world’s faiths and philosophies who are working together (whether they know it or not) to make this a better world. Let’s start making the better world of tomorrow, today.
