Speed Dialogue gives a safe haven for serious discussion

It seems as we go further into the 21st century, our desire for better means of communication is increasing rapidly.  
Cell phones are designed around social media outlets like Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.  We are always seeking ways to make our computers faster.  People want to share every small detail of their lives, and they want to be able to do it instantaneously.
But, all too often, lost in the mix of Tweets, Instagrams and status updates, are the relevant and substantial topics.  For some, sharing intimate details about love lives is acceptable, but when it comes to discussing religion or politics, comfort zones are then breached.
Project Interfaith is an initiative in Omaha dedicated to providing a forum for open and respectful learning and interaction about identity, religion, belief and culture.  On Thursday, Jan. 31, Project Interfaith will host their fourth "Speed Dialogue" at the Urban Abbey on 10th and Jackson Streets.
