Interfaith Heroes - Great Stories

I love to share with you things I stumble across on the web.  Today, the find is "Interfaith Heroes" - a section of a website called Read the Spirit. The site features, "...true stories of men and women who risked crossing religious boundaries to heal communities and, in many cases, to save lives."  Martin Luther King, Jr., Thich Naht Hanh, The Dalai Lama, Corrie Ten Boom, and many more are profiled here. More stories can be found in the book, Interfaith Heroes 2 and its predecessor, Interfaith Heroes.

We make heroes out of atheletes, business leaders, politicians, and cartoon characters. In a world so hungry for acts of courage, so in need of dialog and bridges to understanding, acceptance, and peace, I'm grateful for these true heroes. May their stories inspire courage in all of us.
