Better Together is TCU’s interfaith organization hosted by the Office of Religious & Spiritual Life. As members of this group, we are passionate about driving the TCU community and beyond to a state where all are welcome, all are excepted–no exceptions. With this as the organization’s purpose, we encourage community and discussion between people of all different backgrounds–specifically with regard to spirituality. Better Together encourages people to take part in dialogue with members of different religions and spiritualities in order to not only promote acceptance of these ideals but also knowledge of the different perspectives. We take part in this mission with three pillars of service, fellowship, and interfaith. As far as service goes, we are currently partnering with Tarrant Literacy Coalition in it’s mission to promote family literacy. In the past, we’ve hosted book drives and our annual Halloween party in efforts to support their cause. Our fellowship has included events game nights and frisbee parties to promote community within the group. Lastly, we participate in interfaith experience by relationships with other religious organizations on campus such as Hillel and Muslim Student Association along with visiting sites of spiritual practice, such as mosques and Buddhist temples. Although we’re a relatively new group at TCU, we are excited about our direction and looking forward to a lot of growth.
