On August 2, 2003 the Toledo Blade reported that "a Toledo couple known for their efforts in promoting interfaith programs have launched a new organization, the Multifaith Council of Northwest Ohio, to better facilitate understanding and acceptance among the area’s diverse religious communities... 'What’s so different about us? We’re all God’s children even though we may take different spiritual paths,' said Woody Trautman, a retired electrical engineer who co-founded the MCNWO with his wife, Judy Lee Trautman... The council held several organizational meetings last month in which a 10-person executive board was elected, with officers representing 10 different faiths, Mr. Trautman said, including a Hindu, Moslem, Jew, Protestant Christian, Roman Catholic, Baha’i, and Christian Scientist."
