An organization in Omaha will be getting national attention later this week. The Tri-Faith Initiative program started as a discussion back in 2006 and is well on its way of becoming a reality. The Initiative is located in west Omaha and currently is the home to Temple Israel’s synagogue, the first of four buildings that will occupy the campus. This year the American Muslim Institute should be complete and construction start on the Countryside Community Church.
CNN will be in Omaha today to talk to Global Faith Institute’s Executive Director Dr. Mark Christian who is apprehensive of the project. He will be in meetings with Anderson Cooper and other members of CNN today and tomorrow. As for now, he doesn’t know whether he will be interviewed by them or not.
Dr. Christian says, “I would love to do it live. They want to highlight the Tri-Faith Initiative and as you know I have so many concerns with the size of the Muslamic part of the Tri-Faith and the nature of the whole project all together and how that is going to affect our community. Is it possible not and I don’t think it is.”
CNN plans on airing the feature later this week.
