|About||One of the last designs of Pritzker prize-winning architect Philip Johnson, the Interfaith Peace Chapel will be a sacred space where people of all faiths, or no faith, can come together to seek understanding and pursue peace.|
Regardless of what one believes about God, can any of us doubt that the world will be better when religion is a source of peace rather than conflict? As the old song says:
Let there be peace on earth...
and let it begin with me!
The warping walls of the Interfaith Peace Chapel do what walls are not supposed to do. Without right angles or parallel lines, the space will slightly disorient visitors and prepare them for the reorientation of their souls.
Regardless of faith, our goal is to orient the hearts and minds of people away from conflict and division and toward cooperation and community. People of faith have been a part of many great movements for human progress. Churches, synagogues, temples and mosques have built schools, hospitals and orphanages. They have fed the poor and advocated for those at the margins of society. They led the Civil Rights Movement just a few decades ago and stand ready to lead a new movement toward human peace.
