The Interfaith Observer

Welcome to The Interfaith Observer Resource

This year The Center for Ecumenical and Interreligious Engagement at Seattle University is grateful for the opportunity to partner with the premier interreligious and intercultural independent digital publication of its kind – The Interfaith Observer, or TIO for short.  TIO is trusted and read around the world.  It is founded by Paul Chaffee, a respected luminary in the field for decades, and is managed in the endlessly creative leadership of Megan Anderson as Editor and Webmaster.  CEIE will curate two issues of essays at TIO this coming year, and has integrated TIO into the Religica Theolab’s home page.  In addition, Paul Chaffee joins the Center as a Fellow this academic year, and in this role will produce his well-read, monthly “Interfaith News Roundup,” which we will highlight each month of this academic year. 

TIO provides historical perspectives, surveys current interfaith news, profiles major stakeholders, and otherwise provides maps and sign-posts for the different sectors of an emerging interfaith culture. It offers a context to explore and respond to the new religious world we live in. TIO is designed as a resource for the general reader, anyone interested in the subject. But articles are filled with references and links for those who wish to pursue a particular subject.
