Tysons Interfaith is pleased to announce the launch of its new website: www.tysonsinterfaith.org.
“We are very excited to launch this new platform as a community service, which we envision will be a clearing house of information for people who live and work in the Tysons area,” said Bill Larson, President of the organization. “The website includes a map, created in conjunction with Fairfax County, where people can find local houses of worship, parks, and other community resources. It provides information about interfaith events, opportunities for worship, volunteerism, and assistance resources. The website will also feature a blog, and advocacy and educational materials we hope will foster constructive community dialogue and advance the principles of diversity, mutual respect, compassion and ethical engagement.”
The Fairfax County Tysons Comprehensive Plan envisions the development of a 24/7 urban center of up to 100,000 residents and 200,000 jobs by the year 2050. Said Larson, “We believe that those who live, work, and play in Tysons will enjoy higher quality of life through the public services, spiritual growth , and community service opportunities available to them through the diverse faith traditions and houses of worship surrounding Tysons. Since there is currently no physical space available for worship or spiritual practice within Tysons, Tysons Interfaith is creating a virtual space where people can learn of public services available, plug in to their personal faith tradition, or explore options for their own spiritual growth or public service.”
Larson continued, “Through our work together at Tysons Interfaith, we have found that people of varying faith practices and spiritual traditions share many values, and that we take great joy in working together for the betterment of our community and world. We invite congregations, groups, and individuals to join in this unique opportunity to build a vibrant, Tysons community that is welcoming for all.”
Tysons Interfaith, a 501(c)(3) Corporation, was founded in 2013 to promote interfaith understanding, spiritual growth, and human connection in the rapidly growing community of Tysons, Virginia. For further information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 703-244-3252.
