At first glance, the beliefs of different religions seem to be very different. It may give the impression that complete opposites collide. Religious and cultural peculiarities may obscure what we all share and what we can learn from each other. In this retreat, we want to get to know representatives and believers from different religious communities. We want to meet with openness, joy and acceptance, learn from each other and practice together. All interested people are welcome to become ambassadors of interreligious and intercultural dialogue.
