Over 2500 years ago an anonymous Hebrew poet wrote;
“O, how good and pleasant it is when brother and sisters live together in unity.” (Psalm 133:1)
We are striving to inhabit that sacred space of divinely inspired harmony here in the 21st century.
Eagle County, Colorado enjoys one of the finest interfaith communities in the world today. Interfaith chapels in Vail and Beaver Creek have provided spiritual nurture, worship and community service for over forty years to residents and visitors of the Vail Valley. By focusing on what unites us as people rather than on what divides us and by continuing our long history of cooperation, mutual respect and shared facilities, we believe we can better:
Express the best religious tenets of tolerance and mutual respect present in all our faith traditions.
Utilize combined human and financial resources to accomplish much more in building and programming than any of our congregations could achieve standing alone—enhancing precious congregational resources for serving the community.
Encourage even greater cooperation and affinity between our faiths while inviting other faith traditions to join us.
Respond to community needs with a higher community profile.
