Interfaith Bulletin Board
Rev.Bergstrom graduated and was ordained in Interfaith from the New Seminary of New York City NY.
The term interfaith or interfaith dialogue refers to cooperative and positive interaction between people of different religious traditions, (ie. "faiths") at both the individual and institutional level with the aim of deriving a common ground in belief through a concentration on similarities between faiths.
The doctrine taught at the New Seminary was "Never instead of..Only in addition to."
It is distinct from syncretism or alternative religion, in that dialogue often involves promoting understanding between different religions to increase "tolerance" towards others, rather than to synthesize new beliefs. The history of religion shows that conflict has been more the state of affairs than dialogue.
The term interreligious relations refers to relationships between religions, (rel. comparative religion).
