The Regional Council of Churches is a member of Odyssey Networks whose mission is to use electronic media to enrich spiritual life and build bridges of understanding among people of faith. Odyssey Networks is working with the Department of State, which is working with the London Games, on an initiative called 2012 Hours against Hate. It involves young people reaching out to someone of a different faith, spending an hour together, and reporting what happened. Odyssey Networks will videotape and produce 2 videos from the best stories! This is a rapidly developing project and we have been asked to invite our members and friends to participate.  Here are the facts:

  1. Young people (ages 15 – 24) are invited to participate in this campaign.  
  2. They would find a person of a different faith, spend an hour in some activity with this person, learning more about that person and their faith and the culture it comes from, exploring not just their differences, but their commonalities.  
  3. They can sign up and tell Odyssey the story on their site.  
  4. Odyssey will choose the two best stories and send a film crew to videotape the two people in each story about their experiences in that hour. 

web page  has been designed to guide the young people through the process, which also gives suggestions for making this time a valuable experience, and making their story a compelling one!  The videos will be promoted on Odyssey’s web site, and through social media.  We will make them available for our web site through an embed code. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if are community produced a winning story. The deadline for receiving the written stories is July 15.

 Here is where your youth (ages 15 to 24) can sign up.
