The Interfaith Amigos


Known for their unique blend of spiritual wisdom and humor, Imam Jamal Rahman, Pastor Don Mackenzie and Rabbi Ted Falcon share why interfaith dialogue is so critically important in our world, and how each of their Abrahamic traditions both support as well as inhibit that deeper dialogue.

The Interfaith Amigos present a crucial message in their unique humorous style, helping participants appreciate the promise and the problems of the interfaith experience. With Pastor Don now living in Minneapolis, Pastor Dave Brown, of Immanuel Presbyterian Church in Tacoma, joins Rabbi Ted and Imam Jamal for many local programs, as one of the Pacific Northwest Interfaith Amigos.

With their willingness to openly address the usual taboos of interfaith dialogue—the “awkward parts of each tradition—the Interfaith Amigos create a more authentic conversation, between themselves and with their audiences, giving people an opportunity to step more fully into the rich promise of the interfaith experience.
