Today the Parliament of the World's Religions is pleased to celebrate the public launch of a new PWR-allied organization: Religica.
Developed for a broad audience, Religica was created by Parliament of the World's Religions Trustee and Board Secretary Dr. Michael Reid Trice and allies to produce original videos, podcasts, learning guides and articles. These works arise from a commitment to illuminating how faith and spiritual traditions are a force for good throughout the world, and promise to spark new and wondrous journeys for audiences across religious and interfaith movements.
Visitors to the robust web-hub will find portals of Religica resources that are enriched by showcasing multiple dimensions of diverse human experiences— filtered through religion's expression in the lives and communities of its guests, allies, and contributors. The site includes projects accessible today, and will continue to blossom throughout the year with resources now in development.
