Atheism 3.0 finds a little more room for religion
By Daniel Burke, Religion News Service, USA Today, October 2009

“On the flip side, atheists too, can be a “blessing” for believers, said Samir Selmanovic, co-founder and co-leader of New York’s interreligious Faith House Manhattan and author of It’s Really All About God: Reflections of a Muslim Atheist Jewish Christian... Atheists are ‘God’s whistle-blowers,’ who keep believers honest and focused on the here-and-now, Selmanovic said. ‘Atheism at its best grabs us by the collar and throws us to the ground, demanding to see lives well lived, forcing us to dig deeper and live up to the best of our own religions,’ he writes.”

Seattle’s Interfaith Amigos
By Amy Frykholm, Christian Century, August 2008

“grassroots efforts have sprung up in many places.  The old-style interfaith roundtables in which academics or religious leaders gathered to discuss their theological differences in formal meetings have given way to more informal efforts.  These are often led or developed by laypeople, as in the case of the Interfaith Youth Core in Chicago, the Faith House in Manhattan, Women Transcending Boundaries in Syracuse and Daughters of Abraham in Detroit.”
