Tysons Interfaith Announces New Website
(Tysons, Virginia, March 23, 2021) Today, Tysons Interfaith announced the launch of its new website: https://tysonsinterfaith.org/
“We are very excited to launch this new platform as a community service for people who live and work in the Tysons area,” said Bill Larson, President of the organization. “The website features opportunities for worship, volunteerism, and assistance resources. It also features a blog, advocacy, and educational materials we hope will foster constructive community dialogue and advance the principles of diversity, mutual respect, compassion, and ethical engagement. The site also has a downloadable map, created in conjunction with Fairfax County, to help people find local houses of worship, parks, and other community resources.”
The Fairfax County Comprehensive Plan envisions Tysons as an urban center of 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 in 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, “By working together, we have learned that people of different faith practices and spiritual traditions share many values and enjoy working together to better our community. 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.
