The Dialogue Project provides opportunities to learn about Houston’s diverse faith communities, engage with people from diverse backgrounds, share your own experiences and listen to the experiences of others. Through the Dialogue Project, Interfaith Ministries aims to inspire participants to further interfaith dialogue, collaboration and service in their own communities. Interreligious understanding is a necessity, more so now than ever before.
Thank you to our Multi-Faith Council and The Eleanor and Frank Freed Foundation for sponsoring the 2020 Dialogue Project. For more information on The Dialogue Project, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Dialogue Project: Vital Conversations with our Community
In this new series, we will address issues of social justice and race relations.
Vital Conversations premiered with the voices of three Houston faith leaders- often affectionately referred to in Houston as the “Three Amigos” – Archbishop Joseph A. Fiorenza (Catholic), Rabbi Samuel E. Karff (Jewish), and Reverend William A. Lawson (Baptist) in a virtual discussion on Fighting for Justice, Equality and Respect.
Watch the video of this program above.
On Wednesday, August 26 from 6:30- 8:00 p.m., IM’s IMpulse young professionals group will host the third Vital Conversation via Zoom and Facebook Live. For more info, please contact Kim at email@example.com.
The Dialogue Project: Dinner Dialogues

Faith in Our City
Houston is the most diverse urban region in the country. As a result, we have a wealth of religious diversity. Of the over 6,000,000 people in the Greater Houston metro area, 80 percent identify as actively religious . The way we worship, when we worship and where we worship differs.
Come and discover the diversity of Houston through Faith in Our City, a program that increases awareness of the variety of faith traditions we have in our community. Each month, a different faith tradition will be highlighted. During that month there will be two separate opportunities to learn about and engage with that faith: an in-depth visit and experience at a house of worship and an educational discussion over lunch.
The Rev. Greg Han
