Even though the meetings are hosted by the Bahais of UNC, the group maintains that the meetings are religiously neutral.
"This is a workshop of worship," said junior Victor Ahdieh, co-chairman of the Bahais of UNC. "We are in no way trying to impress our beliefs (on anyone)."
The interfaith meetings have been held Monday through Wednesday nights for the past two weeks. A final week of meetings will take place next week, Monday through Wednesday nights at 7 p.m. in Dey Hall.
Bahai is a religion that supports all religions, said sophomore Renee Cloer. She explained that the Bahai religion originated in 17th century Persia and that it teaches respect toward other religions.
Cloer, a member of the Bahais of UNC, said that she enjoyed the meetings and that she was happy with the turnout.
"It is a forum for dialogue," she said. "It's nice because (the people) know they're able to speak openly."
Lee said the Bahais of UNC will evaluate the series of meetings before deciding whether to hold more meetings later in the year.
But to keep the discussion going through the end of the semester, the Bahais will be hosting an interfaith gathering later this month.
The coffeehouse event, called "One World, One Night, One Spirituality," will be held at 8 p.m. on Nov. 23 in the multipurpose room of the new Student Union.
"It's going to be performances (such as) song, dance, spoken word from people of all different religions about their spirituality and what their faith means to them," Lee said.
"It will be a celebration to harmonize the different faiths," said Tim Marr, professor of American studies and the Bahais' faculty adviser.
"We're going to bring together a number of different individuals from different religions to share (experiences)."
