A Middle Tennessee where people of faith and goodwill live together in respect, compassion and mutual support, creating paths to peace and justice for all people.
All of our programs and efforts are guided by the Our Muslim Neighbor Initiative, a national initiative of Religions for Peace USA. As the backbone organization running OMN in Nashville, our work is based in the desire to recycle successful efforts and attitudes that carried those before us through happy and difficult times for our generation and those who will carry on.
A Seat at the Table
The Our Muslim Neighbor Initiative encourages dialogue among people of all backgrounds and faiths. To that end, A Seat at the Table (ASATT) is an informal, interfaith conversation around dinner where participants share with others about our day-to-day lives in order to learn about our neighbors of other faiths. Please contact us if you are interested in hosting or participating in one of these events.
Annual Nashville Community Iftar
The Nashville Community Iftar is co-hosted by Faith & Culture Center and the Metro Human Relations Commission. Yearly we bring together more than 175 community, city and religious leaders for an evening of food, education and community building.
Life Together: A Community and Religious Leaders Conference
This three-day conference will be a prayerful time of reflection and relationship building among Christian, Jewish and Muslim leaders in Middle Tennessee. We will visit our houses of worship, hear nationally recognized faith leaders speak to the importance of interfaith relations, and learn from one another about our rich and diverse traditions of faith. In 2014 we welcomed Dr. Yehezkel Landau, Rev. Dr. Christine Hong of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A), and Imam Bahloul of the Islamic Center of Murfreesboro.
