Interfaith sharing is becoming common in communities across the country. For example, here in Tucson the coalition of Congregation Ner Tamid, the Islamic Center of Tucson and St. Francis in the Foothills United Methodist Church call themselves an "interfaith task force." They schedule community movie nights on Sundays, followed by a discussion of the movie. The point is to foster understanding between different faiths through films. Also, a museum exhibit that originated in Israel is now touring major cities around the world for the last four years. Its title is "Coexistence: The Art of Living Together." The poster that is part of the tour is a large, dark bean pod containing black, red, yellow, and white beans. The copy on the poster reads "Human Beans: CoExistence."
In the spirit of these two examples, what image, symbol, or picture/graphic can we think of that would express the idea of interfaith cooperation / understanding? The cliché for this idea is a three-part handshake among black, red, yellow, and white hands. What does imagination suggest?© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com October 16, 2018, 6:20 pm ad1c9bdddf
Interfaith sharing examples are noted.
Art Commission Statement
I need help preparing a 1,050- to 1,400-word commission statement for a cross sculpture that is to be placed at the entrance, or in the lobby, of a new Christian and Jewish Interfaith Cultural and Historical Center. The commission statement must address the following items:
o Explain how the piece will represent developments in world events and cultural patterns past and present in Judaism and Christianity and why it is appropriate for the proposed location.
o Discuss why the group believes that the commissioned piece will reflect the Jewish and Christian concepts of humanity's relationship to nature and the individualâ??s relationship to the world and deity.
o Discuss the value of commissioning such a piece for this location, how the piece is expected to enhance the intellectual and physical environments, and how it represents some aspect or feature of the Cultural and Historical Center.View Full Posting Details
