Faith guides many Texans in navigating their everyday lives, shaping their closest relationships and informing how they serve their communities. In a world that feels more divided by the day, how are people of faith working to break down barriers and bring communities together to solve our biggest problems?

On Wednesday, May 27, Robert Downen, the Tribune’s democracy reporter, talked with Texas faith leaders about how they serve their communities, foster connection in the face of divisive public discourse and encourage people who are losing faith in our systems and institutions.

The speakers included a panel from MFNN including Houston triad leaders Shariq Abdul Ghani (executive director, Minaret Foundation) & Rabbi Steve Gross along with MFNN co-founder Pastor Bob Roberts.
