The Parliament of the World’s Religions offers a different perspective on faith than does the World Congress of Families who are preparing for their own gathering this weekend. The individuals at this gathering represented 80 different countries, and an equally diverse group of faiths. The Rev. Mark Lukens, a pastor in the United Church of Christ and Chairperson of the Board of Directors at Interfaith Alliance of Long Island, joins us on State of Belief this week to discuss his experience at the gathering in Salt Lake City. Mark will discuss the goals of the Parliament of the World’s Religions, and the activities that he was involved in at the gathering.
