What We Do

LYNC: Embracing a Triad of Key Initiatives

Freedom of 
Religion or Belief

Religious freedom thrives through joint efforts of governments, civil society, and individuals, who work on creating an environment that honors religious diversity and supports everyone's right to practice once faith without fear or persecution.

Fostering Pluralistic Societies

Covenantal Pluralism is essential for building a peaceful and prosperous society, as people are encouraged to develop a robust, relational, and non-relativistic paradigm for living together, peacefully and productively, in the context of deep differences.

Safeguarding Hope

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between Multi-faith and Interfaith?

The terms "interfaith" and "multi-faith" are often used interchangeably. LYNC intentionally operates as a multi-faith community, maintaining our self-identity while building friendships without compromising our beliefs. The prefix multi- means no blending of faiths and that religions and spiritual paths exist independently side-by-side. A multi-faith space offers a secure and inclusive environment for individuals to freely express their religious convictions and to engage in the study and understanding of different faiths, without the risk of criticism or mistreatment. Conversely, participating in interfaith communication could establish a way of thinking that all religions worship the same god and take different paths to the same heaven. This type of theological reconciliation would upset the conservative side of any religion and make engagement impossible. A multi-faith approach allows society to learn through dialogue, overcoming ignorance. Asking questions about a person's beliefs is a great way to build a bridge. The multi-faith approach permits us to dialogue openly with others we would otherwise not encounter.

What is covenantal pluralism?

Covenantal pluralism is a robust, relational, and non-relativistic paradigm for living together, peacefully and productively, in the context of deep difference. It is a philosophy that advocates for cultural norms of interacting, honoring, and defending the other as well as a constitutional system of equal rights and obligations. It does not necessarily imply moral equivalency to all other people's ideas and conduct. LYNC uses a three-pronged approach derived from the principles of covenantal pluralism consisting of multi-faith relationship building, religious literacy, and all-inclusive dialogue (religion in the public square).
