Episode Info:

Author and activist Dr. Eboo Patel is nationally and even internationally known for his interfaith work on college campuses as the founder and president of Interfaith Youth Core, but as a young man, religion wasn’t even on his radar.  In this interview we’ll follow his path back to faith and to interfaith work, and why he feels it’s important enough to devote his life to it. If you’ve ever wondered what interfaith work is or why it should matter to you, please take a listen. The interview is followed by a panel discussion with four Chaplains who serve people of all faiths or no faith, in college, hospice, prison, and a police department, and how they have seen interfaith relationships strengthen people and communities.  There's also a link below to a video of Dr. Patel’s recent address at BYU on the purpose and the history of interfaith work in the US. Click the link to watch the video of Dr. Eboo Patel speaking on interfaith work at BYU conference. He is introduced at 21:12 into the video.
