Foran '12 Guest Blogs for Washington Post's "The Faith Divide"

August 17, 2010

Rachel Foran '12 penned a guest blog entry for the August 17 Washington Post edition. Foran, whose doing an internship with Interfaith Youth Core this summer and is a religion major, writes in "The Faith Divide" blog about finding commonality between different religions, using her experiences as a Christian and comparing it with the messages she hears from Brother Ali, a Muslim rap artist. She writes "…I relate to the message of his music because it has been informed and shaped by his faith. Our stories may seem contrary, but we share a common vision and a common understanding. Religion should not be confined to media reports of extremism and violence. It can be a powerful force for good."
