Interfaith storytelling

Sometimes people worry that getting children involved in interfaith work could be confusing, or cause them to doubt their own community’s stories. Actual practice suggests otherwise, with children actually being drawn more deeply into their own community’s stories, even as they engage others with respect. Here’s an example, from a group based in Albany, NY:

The founders of Children at the Well have discovered that storytelling is an ideal framework to engender young people who feel comfortable with religious and cultural diversity and comfortable in telling their own faith journeys. Storytellers around the world – young and old alike – have discovered that as long as we have stories to share, the living well will never run dry.
