A traditional Sikh meal of curry and yogurt will set the table for an evening of discussion at the Arizona Interfaith Movement's second annual Experience Interfaith event.

"This year we will be talking about peace and nonviolence," said Paul Eppinger, founder and executive director of the group, which counts 24 faiths in its membership.

"We will talk about how our faiths view the question of moving from inner peace to peace in the world."

The Arizona Interfaith Movement is an organization that emphasizes the values held in common by the world's religions.

Members support each other in times of need, and the organization holds regular meetings to learn about each other's faiths.
