Operation Understanding Youth Tour
YOUTH TOUR CANCELLED: Due to hazardous road conditions, the Youth Interfaith Tour has been cancelled.
The 2014 Operation Understanding Interfaith Tour will be held from 1:30 - 4:30 p.m. on Sun., March 1. The annual Youth Interfaith Tour of diverse houses of worship – “Operation Understanding” – is an effort to encourage interchange, interaction, and dialogue among individuals of varying faith traditions. The Tour, which is held on a Sunday afternoon in the fall each year, has been enormously popular and successful since its inception in 1981. Operation Understanding brings together middle school and high school students to afford them an opportunity to learn about some of the different religions in Tulsa. No proselytizing is allowed. As the group visits the houses of worship, the clergy will speak to them and answer questions. We hope this experience will help the students understand, appreciate and respect differences in religion. Attendees are not expected to participate in the worship, but are asked to respectfully observe.
