At the end of his book, I read that he had a blog, which I started to follow. Last week, Medearis posted about the GLOBAL FAITH FORUM (of which I'd never heard). Here is his blog post about the event:
Global Faith Forum

NorthWood Church, Keller, TX
HRH Prince Turki Al Faisal, HE Vietnamese Ambassador Le Cong Phung, Os Guinness, Eboo Patel, Ray Bakke, Bob Roberts, Jr., Ed Stetzer and others
Why the Global Faith Forum?
In case you haven’t noticed, the world around us is getting smaller. What used to be “on the other side of the world” is now in our own backyard.
As a result, we are rubbing shoulders with people of different cultures and religions who hold different values and beliefs.
In the midst of this shrinking world, we have three basic choices:
1. Live in fear of what we don’t understand threatening to burn, hate and denigrate.
2. Bury our head in the sand and play like none of this is happening (but you’d better turn off the evening news and try to not act too surprised when the globalized world lands on your front porch.)
3. Seek to engage in conversation, learning to respect and understand others while not compromising our core beliefs.
We believe option #3 is the best choice.
Join us at the Global Faith Forum as we learn how to join the conversation.
