“We laugh often, to prevent us from crying” – in this Ted Ex video, the Interfaith Amigos highlight how compassion and humor can help us understand each others commonalities and differences. Rabbi Ted Falcon, Pastor Don Mackenzie, and Imam Jamal Rahman explain how interfaith work is not about conversion, but more about becoming complete human beings. Through this process we can move on to collaborating on social justice projects that benefit all of us. They end on a touching note with their theme song: it’s all one and I am as I am.
TEDxDU’s theme of “Radical Collaboration” is personified in the Interfaith Amigo’s. In a time when religion appears to be at the heart of fragmentation, suspicion and conflict, their friendship is a beacon to a wiser, more compassionate, and hopeful path. TEDxDu
