Through the Interreligious Relations Convening Table, the NCC engages in numerous dialogues with other faiths to provide a forum for sharing, common counsel, and theological reflection on topics of mutual interest. We have had long standing dialogues with both the Jewish and Muslim communities. More recently, in 2018 NCC began dialogues with three additional faith communities; Buddhist, Hindu, and Sikh. These dialogues complement the original Abrahamic faith dialogues and represent a new channel of communication with faiths from Eastern origins that are followed by billions of people around the world. Through these dialogues, we work together to bring our collective perspective to bear on critical issues facing our country and world.
