At All Saints Church we are committed to the proposition that peace and justice making are not options for the world’s great religions. Rather peace and justice making are central mandates for us all the world’s great religions. We believe that God’s desire is to advance the agenda of peace through true community in the broadest sense – and a long standing commitment to interfaith education, dialogue, collaboration and celebration is one of the hallmarks of All Saints Church.

In September 2010 All Saints' rector Ed Bacon stood with interfaith leaders against the Islamaphobic rhetoric surrounding the tenth anniversary of 9/11. The full text of the media release is here ... and included this statement:
“We will not stand by while fear mongers attempt to make September 11th events moments of demonization and polarization by advocating tactics that are neither American nor authentically religious. All the world religions advocate living out of the House of Love, not the House of Fear. We encourage all people of good will, religious or not to overcome hatred and fear with love by seeking to understand Islam as a religion of peace.”
