Abstract

In Indonesia, one of the needs for dialogue between religious people manifests in religious harmony forum programs as the implementation of Pancasila, Preamble 1945, Article 29 paragraph 2, and Joint Decree of Ministry of Home Affairs and Ministry of Religious Affairs No 8 and 9 2006. This research employed ethnographic methods to reveal the dialogue difficulties between religious people that are prone to conflict. One of the research results showed that the root of conflict between religious people is the diversity of interpretation of the religious teachings. However, this issue refers to the diversity of interpretations between religious institutions and the diversity of interpretations from each individual of the religious community. It implies that dialogue in the context of religions and daily life yields problems or dilemmas that are impossible to solve. However, it should be regarded as an integral part of the dialogue itself.
