"THE WORLD IS IN A CRISIS, and the answer to that is more spirituality — not from any one religion in particular, but from a variety of faiths and better cooperation. That was one of the ideas espoused by the Salt Lake Interfaith Roundtable during a panel discussion on 'Interfaith Dialogue in a Time of Crisis'... at the Salt Lake City Library. 'The more we read of other faiths, the more we see the commonalities of each other,' said Jan Saeed of the Bahà'ì faith and leader of the Interfaith Roundtable group. Roger Keller, religious studies chairman at Brigham Young University...agreed. 'I find as I look at other people's faiths I put on new glasses to look at my own faith.' He said there needs to be more venues like this panel discussion to break down barriers between religions. This doesn't diminish one's own religion beliefs. 'We accept each other just like we are,' he said..... He also said the world is too fractured and fragmented for religion to continue to separate people. 'We find much more commonality in spirituality,' he said."
