Understanding common ground

Religion Monitor

Religious diversity is part of today’s world. In Germany, for example, adherents of different faiths live together with many people who do not belong to a religious denomination at all. Religion is a key factor determining how people think and act, and therefore a major social force. Consequently, one of the main challenges the world faces today is finding a way for people of different cultural and religious backgrounds to coexist in harmony within any given society. Moreover, if we want to live together in freedom and diversity in the future, we must gain a better understanding of religion and its significance for social change.
