A my first impression on visiting a Village in Raj Stan state a where there a a Large desert area and farming is marginal a was that everyone was literally drooping from malnutrition. Actually people May not die so much of hunger in the next few months but they will be so debilitated that they will be an easy prey to disease and epidemics.

Claire Santway congregational mrs. Mildred Forman Church of god and Robert Roy and mrs. Frances Stockman roman Catholic. The topic for discussion was a chapter a How do we worship a from the text used in these inter Faith dialogues in several areas of Vermont this Winter. In introducing the program Latif explained that while All panel members had taken part in these dialogues previously this was the first time this particular group had met so that the discussion was unrehearsed and spontaneous. The vitality of the program was brought out by the fact that for nearly an hour the audience was held almost spell bound by the dialogue a and the panel itself became so engrossed in the search and sincerity of the discussion that they seemed to forget that this was being done before any audience at All. Each panel member explained briefly the form of worship in his or her particular Church noting variations in postures ritual of absence of it and formality or informality of prayer. Some of the discussion evolved around the attitude to prayer in its various forms. Panel members expressed different reactions to the Impact of prayer As a communal or individual expression. It appeared however that these reactions were a matter More of individual feelings than of denominational beliefs. Other thoughts expressed by the panel dealt with the values of Unity in formal Church services music As a stimulus to religious expression and the need for a a silent time in most Church services. It was noted that these a living room dialogues serve people of All faiths not Only in coming to an understanding of denominational beliefs and forms other than their own but also led to the development of a greater understanding of each ones own religion. Council president mrs. William c. Sennett summed up the reaction to this program by commenting a i no to have a Chance to participate last Winter but i certainly Hope to be Able to take part when the program is there was Complete agreement in the audience with this enthusiastic response to the values of inter Faith communication of this kind.
