“Living Together” – Focus programme of the Austrian Protestant Women

„Living Together“ – a folder with materials and background documentation for interreligious dialogue for the yearly campain 2014/15.

Editing Team: Aleks Kolodziejczyk, Barbara Heyse-Schaefer, 2. Edition 2014

The folder is dedicated to exploring respect for difference in dealing with „the other“. It was conceived for work in parishes, in religious education and confirmation classes, and in programmes of adult education within the Protestant Church of Austria.

It aims at using the experiences of EPIL and making them fruitful for peaceful living together in a secular society.
