FRIENDSHIP & FAITH: the WISDOM of women creating alliances for peace
At the 2009 retreat of WISDOM (Women’s Interfaith Solutions for Dialogue and Outreach in Metro Detroit) Brenda proposed writing a book – a collection of the personal stories of how the women of WISDOM built bridges of understanding and friendship across religious and cultural divides. The book FRIENDSHIP & FAITH: the WISDOM of women creating alliances for peace was launched April 15, 2010. It is the first time 30 women from 7 different faith groups; Jewish, Christian, Muslim, Baha’i,Sikh, Hindu, and Buddhist have come together to share their stories of creating meaningful connection – stories of struggle and hope.
FRIENDSHIP & FAITH the WISDOM of women creating alliances for peace has had an overwhelming response, feature articles in newspapers as diverse as The Jewish News, Muslim Observer, Arab American News, and Huffington Post and speaker engagements at Temples, Churches, Universities, Inter faith Conferences, Saks Fifth Avenue – the only book presented at both Islamic Society of North America National Conference and the Jewish Book Fair.
