Interfaith Peace Garden sows seeds of religious harmony
(Houston Chronicle)

The nonprofit aims to increase understanding among people of different faiths through shared experiences. Two years ago, volunteers had an idea for a multi-religious center to create direct interfaith and intercultural interaction in Houston.
