Interfaith Curricula & Educational Resources – free online

Dear interfaith colleagues around the world: recently, we at Scarboro Missions re-designed and re-organized the Interfaith Curriculum Resources section of our website (see link below). The new design is very user-friendly. You can explore this rich collection in nine theme areas: schools & youth groups, peace–building, ecology & social justice, prayer & meditation, colleges & universities, interfaith toolkits, young adults, Golden Rule and bi-lateral dialogues. Extra added bonus: most of these resources can be downloaded free of charge.

These resources include online courses, best practices, do-it-yourself workshops, activities, multifaith prayer services, starter kits, guidelines, games, meditations and slideshows.

Featuring resources from around the world, this compilation is one of the most comprehensive collections of interfaith curricula on the Internet. Here is the link:  

Please consider forwarding this announcement to colleagues and posting it on websites and social media.
