Interfaith Special: Messages Of Hope For The Coronavirus Pandemic

Cait Salinas | UPR

From social distancing to new levels of anxiety and distress, the coronavirus pandemic has rapidly transformed our lives. On Sunday morning at 10:00, tune in to UPR to hear an interfaith program featuring messages of hope tailored to this particular moment.

We’ll hear from Liz Lachmar of the Baha’i Faith, Eliza Rosenberg on Judaism, Patrick Mason of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Ravi Gupta on his Hindu faith, Steve Sturgeon of the Episcopal Church, Buddhist Dominic Sur, sixth-generation Shoshone Latter-day Saint Darren Parry, and Dr. Abdulkafi Albirini of the Logan Islamic Center. They’ll share stories from their traditions, scriptures, and practices they are turning to for hope, comfort, and strength.
