Faith Leaders Discuss Role Of Religion In Communities
We continued our series on community—We Are The Valley—with a conversation on the impact of religion and spirituality. What role does religion play in building community? And, how does it bring communities together, especially among different faiths?
Our guests were the Rev. Paul Eppinger, executive director of the Arizona Interfaith Movement; Anita Rangaswami, who represents the Hindu faith on the board of the Arizona Interfaith Movement; and Larry Bell, executive director of the Cutler-Plotkin Jewish Heritage Center in Phoenix.
