Full Title
Seek peace and pursue it : the church as a messenger in the public square : building interfaith bridges of peace and reconciliation
Author

Abstract
"By building interfaith bridges of peace, a faith community becomes a vital actor in the public square. St. Paul's, New York, a German speaking congregation and representative of the German Protestant Churches set on an American-German horizon, is such a witness. By engaging in interfaith work it tries to counteract Antisemitism and racism, utilizing a public theology grounded in the imago Dei and the Golden Rule to form the Beloved Community. The author researched this work through the initiatives "Dove Power" and "Faith Journeys." The analysis shows a large impact on participants, even as the envisaged percentage of involved parishioners could not be met." -- Leaf [2].
