Religions for Peace USA – Knoxville
Religions for Peace USA – Knoxville is run by a Core Team formed in January of 2016 with the goal of bringing people of different backgrounds and beliefs together to create a more positive vision of what living with and loving one’s neighbor can encompass. The Core Team is made of up faith and community leaders representing many religious traditions.
Currently, “A Seat At The Table” is our primary program. ASATTs are informal gatherings meant to connect individuals through guided, intentional conversations. Over a meal, facilitators ask participants to share their own formational experiences in building community across racial and religious differences, while also learning from others in the room.
It is our hope that through spaces like A Seat at the Table, we might build a more united community in Knoxville, made up of many different religious communities. Our work seeks to further equip individuals to positively impact their own communities. It is our belief that relationship eradicates hate and fear.
