Interactive exercises and creative activities help interfaith families decide how they want to honor their histories, cultures, and beliefs in ways that nurture joy, creativity, and empowerment. This five-week program encourages deep reflection, intimate dialogue, constructive ways to engage with extended family, and strategies for connecting with local communities. With space for writing directly in the book, the Journal becomes a keepsake of the interfaith journey.

Going Forward

Interfaith families are a growing and important segment of society. One in every five Americans now grows up in an interfaith family, according to a recent study by the Pew Research Center. Given this reality, this journal is not going to defend the formation or existence of interfaith families—we're already here! Instead, these pages will help you to find a way of living inside our whirling religious kaleidoscope without getting overwhelmed. The exercises here will support you in finding your own way to build the bonds of love while honoring more than one culture, more than one set of traditions, and more than one set of beliefs, in a way that will create joy and empowerment. It will bring you through a process of discerning your own best pathway as an interfaith family—a process that can itself provide intellectual and spiritual nourishment.
