With all of the problems facing the world today, people are longing for meaning. Many find answers in religion or spirituality, but as a result faith and religion are often hijacked by those seeking to enhance their own power. With this dichotomy in mind, "Beyond Our Differences" calls upon key religious leaders, politicians, and luminaries in their fields and it asks what it is that inspires them to affect positive change.

It truly shows that no matter what religion you believe in, they all share the same truths about love, compassion and helping others.

This film ran on Bill Moyers Journal on 26 Dec. 2008...a remarkable film that focuses upon the idea that religion(s) and mankind should make an effort to realize that all religions and peoples have much in common, and good reason to explore the positive likes and ignore the negative dislikes that cause wars and so very much suffering. The world would certainly be a much better, more positive place if this could be put into practice.

Mr.Bill Moyers continues to be the moral and intellectual light of our times in journalism in all its forms. His essays are brilliant and giving of hope. He is impartial and a most reasonable, objective and honest person. I recommend his writings and programs wholeheartedly and without reservations.

This video brings together the core beliefs of every major religion, showing the similarities and peaceful qualities of each. This knowledge allows you to feel more comfortable and even drawn towards different cultures and religions. We are all one, yet we are all unique. Follow the Golden Rule and you have satisfied all of life.

If you were thinking about watching this video, I urge you to risk the 70 mins of your time. You will reap much more than the time sowed.

I loved this film; it cuts through common misunderstanding across faith communities. The Word of God, from many Holy Books, was skillfully used to affirm the common main teachings of all revealed religions: we are here to build love and unity among all people, not to use religion as a wedge to divide us.

In a world torn by strife, this remarkable movie illustrates the beliefs, moralities and virtues that are commonly embraced by the world's prevalent religious ideologies. Therefore, if we are truly people who desire peace (no matter who "we" are), we are challenged to see one another through a lens that focuses on our similarities of needs and purpose. All politicians, regardless of party or governmental system, would benefit from exposure to this film.

I watched this for the first time today. You should. Generation after generation everyone should as a reminder that we can co-create a world that strives for love, peace and compassion. Will our world ever be perfect? No. Should that stop us? No, not ever. If you have hope, then watch this. If you feel hopeless, then watch this. Whatever you feel, think or believe...please watch this. And please ask folks you know to watch it, then pass the message on. Let's live the message. We can do this. We must do this.
