Check out the article at the link provided to see ways that young people in Oklahoma City are ready to go “Beyond Coexistence” as we prepare for a visit by the founder of Interfaith Youth Core, Eboo Patel, to Oklahoma City University. Oklahoma City is preparing to take interfaith cooperation and service to a new level. If it can happen in Oklahoma City, it can happen anywhere!
