All Saints' Episcopal Church rector Tom Momberg was serving as a priest at a small Memphis, Tenn., church in 2001. After Sept. 11, attendance at the church doubled in the following weeks, from an average of 25 to 50.
"Houses of worship, churches, synagogues, mosques, are places where people come at times of great distress and trial," he said.
As the congregation was trying to make sense of what happened, Momberg led them in a meditation based on compassion and a time of silence to reflect on what happened.
It was not what many people wanted to hear at the time, Momberg said, but 10 years after 9/11 he is still hearing there is a need for compassion.
But it's not easy.
"How can I have compassion at the same time for someone that hates Muslims and someone who is Muslim? Momberg said. "That's not a question that I suggest has an easy answer."
Over his 25 years as an Episcopal priest, Momberg has participated in interfaith dialogues dating back to his days at General Theological Seminary in New York City, when he tackled subjects pertaining to Jewish-Christian dialogue.
Momberg referred to those experiences as the beginning of his desire to learn more about his own faith and other faiths.
"The best way to know more about your own faith is to learn more about other faiths," he said. "When we are afraid to learn about other religions ... in a way we are also afraid to learn more about our own."
In his experience, the more he learns about his faith, the more curious he is to learn about other faiths.
Moving forward, Momberg believes listening is key to easing religious tension and conflicts.
Ways to ease that tension include coming together at an interfaith service and daring to pray and share a meal or conversation together, he said.
"It's about coming together, sharing faith with one another and being willing to believe that someone else has something to teach you," Momberg said.
