The Interfaith Amigos


Known for their unique blend of spiritual wisdom and humor, Imam Jamal Rahman, Pastor Don Mackenzie and Rabbi Ted Falcon openly address the usual taboos of interfaith dialogue — the “awkward” parts of each tradition — in order to create a more authentic conversation. With Pastor Don now living in Minneapolis, Pastor Dave Brown of Immanuel Presbyterian Church in Tacoma, Don's colleague and friend, has joined Rabbi Ted and Imam Jamal for most local programs as one of the Pacific Northwest Interfaith Amigos.

In their presentations, the Interfaith Amigos share why interfaith dialogue is so critically important in our world, and how each of their Abrahamic traditions both support as well as inhibit that deeper dialogue.

The Interfaith Amigos present a crucial message in their unique humorous style, helping participants appreciate the promise and the problems of the interfaith experience.

If we want to heal our personal and planetary problems, we have to move beyond talking to spiritual practice.

The third book by the Interfaith Amigos, Finding Peace through Spiritual Practice, will help awaken readers to the spiritual consciousness within each of us that provides the foundation for much-needed healing.

It will be published by Skylight Paths in August 2016.

  1.     Meeting the Challenges of Interfaith Dialogue
    10:30 AM, Saturday, June 4, Weyerhaeuser Memorial Chapel

“They came to their interfaith mission with an abiding sense that their three religions overlap and intersect, and that all religions encourage believers to awaken to a universal force, open their hearts, and transcend their egos to become more complete human beings.”

— from a feature article by Paula Hirschoff in Macalester Today.  

This event is open to the public.
