I always hated even the very idea of coming across people following other sects and religions. I was, in fact, trained at my seminary to keep them at an arm’s length. PEF training workshops on inter-faith and sectarian harmony provided me with the tools and resources to transform my hate into a peace-builder. Now, I regularly hold events to celebrate diversity and pluralism. My transformation has been an inspiration to many faith leaders in my community.
