At Interfaith Ministries for Greater Houston, civic engagement and the importance of the bonds that unite us are the heart of our values. “Dialogue, collaboration, and service,” and “the strength of shared beliefs” have guided our work and our mission for over 50 years.  Over the years, we have seen our community struggle through times of civil unrest and come together in times of need.  At Interfaith Ministries, we remain steadfast in our support of basic American values, knowing that we are stronger together than apart, understanding that e pluribus unum acknowledges our unity is drawn from our diversity, and recognizing that our work serving our community will continue to be grounded in the belief that encouraging and promoting civic engagement and the virtues of service to others are the hallmarks of a strong society.

The historically high turnout during this election reflects how deeply Americans of all political persuasions want their voices heard.  Today’s passions must be channeled for good but could easily devolve into rancor, or worse, if we are not vigilant. Through “dialogue, collaboration, and service” we can find common ground to ensure our community’s vulnerable are cared for, our community’s hungry are fed, our community’s most insecure are reassured, and all those in need find hope and healing.

Our diverse community is bound together by both civic duty and shared principles. In the days, weeks and months ahead, Interfaith Ministries for Greater Houston will continue our work of helping our community find common ground for the common good.  Please join us.
