Facets of Faith
Facets of Faith is a transformative program to promote inter-faith and intercultural understanding, harmony, unity, and a sense of urgency to work together for peace. One gets to know the oneness of the Human family and our shared ideals of hope, love, compassion, and concern for everyone. It doesn't stop there. This program enables one to imbibe leadership qualities based on ethics and appeals to one's mind and heart.
The current structure of FOF is thus holistic in its approach to understanding and bringing into action the ideals enunciated by scholars and sages worldwide.

Moral and Innovative Leadership Forums
Moral leadership is vision driven and guided by universal principles and shared values. A moral leader always seeks the larger purpose, the greater good of the whole, and upholds the noble qualities of humanity in their leadership. Their moral and ethical foundations guide a moral leader’s perspective, decisions, and actions. Innovative leadership is forward-looking, out-of-the-box, and possibility has driven. Such leadership inspires people to use their God-given creativity to advance and transform every sector of human endeavor to challenge obstacles and find new solutions.
This is education or training that is desperately needed in our communities today. We need to cultivate a deep longing, a desire, vision, and understanding of peace, peace in our hearts, in our families, our neighborhoods, in our communities, and in our nations; then, and only then, can we make peace a reality.
