The Sharing Sacred Spaces approach to encouraging interfaith dialogue was inspired by architect Suzanne Morgan who is the “Sacred Spaces Ambassador” for the Council for a Parliament of the World’s Religions.  Morgan says, “Spaces become sacred through the meaning they have for their constituents. Sharing that meaning can build bridges of trust and reduce social tension and cultural misunderstanding. Sacred spaces are healing places. They help all of us to become whole by connecting us to the divine.”
