Welcome to Interfaith of Topeka


Interfaith of Topeka is comprised of people from a variety of faiths and religious traditions. We bring together individuals who are willing to put aside their prejudices and open their minds and hearts to new possibilities. We are willing to engage in the process of working together to build an active community, strong in its shared values of faith, compassion, human dignity, and mutual respect where the expression of love and peace replaces hate and violence.



A panel discussion from Baha’i, Christianity, and Islam featuring Tobias Schlingensiepen, Senior Pastor, First Congregational Church; Omar Hazim, Imam, Islamic Center of Topeka; Professor Chris Hamilton, Teacher, Topeka Baha’i Community; with moderator Rebecca Otte, Bodhisattva Teacher, PrairyErth Zen Center

Martin Luther King said, “The moral arc of the universe is long, but it bends toward justice.” In the wake of the video of George Floyd’s disturbing death, there was and continues to be an outpouring of rage and despair. How could such a thing happen? Was Martin Luther King correct? It would seem that the moral arc of justice is still unrealized in so many ways in our society. Where is justice for people of color, for our LGBTQ community, for the poor and disenfranchised? Interfaith of Topeka has brought together a panel of teachers of Islam, Christianity and Baha’i to help us understand the spiritual underpinnings of social justice and how we as individuals can facilitate the emergence of justice in our neighborhoods and communities.
