Open Hearts, Open Minds: interfaith vigil

In United States of America by

Please join the Greater Concord Interfaith Council at an interfaith vigil in support of immigrants, refugee resettlement, & especially our Muslim neighbors and friends. Recently a member of the Islamic Society of Greater Concord, was at an out of town public event. An unknown woman approached her in a restroom. Like many Muslim women living in America who wear hijabs, appearing in public can be difficult. The woman in the restroom wasn’t a bother, however. She simply wanted to give our friend a hug to show support and kindness toward a Muslim woman. We need more of this as we face profound differences and deteriorating public discourse. A word of kindness to a woman in a hijab, habit or kippah, or a smile to a stranger, shows love. We must comfort those who are being singled out or who live in fear. The Greater Concord Interfaith Council collaborates on important issues because what we have in common is stronger than what …

Interfaith Musical Event for Peace and Harmony

In United States of America by

This is an open and inviting event meant to bring together people of diverse beliefs and backgrounds to express faith through music. Nothing is so wholly unifying and dividing than religion, which makes dialogue between faiths unyielding and difficult sometimes. However, music can be used as a tool to foster communications between groups by simply never using any words at all but rather notes and harmonies. Music is non-political and easily accessible to all which makes it ideal in the effort to build bridges between communities. Through this space, we hope people can experience music from other faiths, and engage in peaceful dialogue.

WHY: To stand in support of the notion that individuals of different values, faiths, and beliefs should be able to make their own decisions about end-of-life care, including the option to request aid in dying from a treating physician if they are terminally ill (with a 6-month prognosis), mentally capable, and able to self-administer the medication at a time of his or her choosing. Every religious denomination has different views on death and dying; as those views differ from one another, they also differ from views held by people who do not identify themselves as religious. We believe that laws adopted by the state should allow every New Yorker to make their own decision about how …

We live in an interconnected world where suffering is visible at every turn and screen shot.   I was reminded of the word, intersectionality, at the recent Women’s March on Washington that helps describe our common humanity.  Intersectionality generally means that we are complex human beings, with many self-identifications and needs that overlap or intersect with others.  It could be gender, race and religion.  It could be the need for clean water and air.  We feel called to respond to the needs of people, to people of all faiths and none; to be of service because their needs are our needs, and our needs are their needs. Our faith traditions reinforce our human desire and need to minimize suffering where and for whom we can. Judaism:  Tikkun olam is a Hebrew phrase that means “repairing the world”.  It suggests humanity’s shared responsibility to heal, repair and transform the world. Buddhism:  Engaged Buddhism refers to Buddhists who seek ways to apply the …

Disturbing The Peace

In United States of America by

A screening of the film DISTURBING THE PEACE followed by an engaging conversation with the filmmakers Stephen Apkon and Marcina Hale as well as the Combatants for Peace featured in the film. DISTURBING THE PEACE is a story of the human potential unleashed when we stop participating in a story that no longer serves us and, with the power of our convictions, take action to create new possibilities. DISTURBING THE PEACE follows former enemy combatants – Israeli soldiers from elite units and Palestinian fighters, many of whom served years in prison – who have joined together to challenge the status quo and say “enough.” The film reveals their transformational journeys from soldiers committed to armed battle to nonviolent peace activists, leading to the creation of Combatants for Peace. At a time in our world when societies are becoming more polarized and painfully few people are speaking of nonviolent solutions to our conflicts, popular movements like Combatants for Peace have the …

Calling in Today’s World: Multifaith Perspectives

In United States of America by

What does a Muslim think about calling? Does a Buddhist or Jew have a similar sense of vocation as a Christian? Do people besides Christians have a sense of calling? While most religious traditions do not share the same notion of calling as Christians, they do, in fact, have surprisingly similar concepts and practices.  In a new book, Calling in Today’s World: Voices from Eight Faith Perspectives,experts representing Jewish, Islamic, Hindu, Buddhist, Confucian, Daoist, secular humanist, and Catholic and Protestant Christian traditions explore how callings are experienced and lived within their communities of faith. This ground-breaking volume offers key texts, stories, persons, concepts, and discernment practices that exemplify each tradition’s view of vocation as well as how modern life poses both difficulties and opportunities for living out a sense of calling.  As the United States becomes more religiously diverse, members of faith communities meet every day in college classes, work places, neighborhoods, volunteer organizations, and efforts for social change.

Islam’s Jesus

In United States of America by

In the West, it is not well known that Jesus is an important figure in the history of Islam. Perhaps it’s time to change that. Dr. Saritoprak’s groundbreaking new book examines Islam’s theological engagement with the Nazarene and explores his role in the future of Islam itself. It begins by examining the Muslim world’s understanding of Jesus as found in the Qu’ran and Hadith. In these key religious texts Jesus is not just a historical figure, but an Islamic messiah. One of the key roles the Son of Mary plays today and in the future is as a bridge between Christianity and Islam. The final chapter surveys his place in Christian-Muslim dialogue. As more than half of the world’s people are either Muslim or Christian, through dialogue Jesus can be a bringer of world peace. Copies of the book will be available for sale and signing at the event. The event is free of charge. RSVP is required.

Calling in Today’s World: Multifaith Perspectives

While most religious traditions do not share the same notion of calling as Christians, they do, in fact, have surprisingly similar concepts and practices.  In a new book, Calling in Today’s World: Voices from Eight Faith Perspectives,experts representing Jewish, Islamic, Hindu, Buddhist, Confucian, Daoist, secular humanist, and Catholic and Protestant Christian traditions explore how callings are experienced and lived within their communities of faith. This ground-breaking volume offers key texts, stories, persons, concepts, and discernment practices that exemplify each tradition’s view of vocation as well as how modern life poses both difficulties and opportunities for living out a sense of calling.  As the United States becomes more religiously diverse, members of faith communities meet every day in college classes, work places, neighborhoods, volunteer organizations, and efforts for social change.

In United States of America by

In “Birds of Longing: Exile and Memory” Laurie Wohl interweaves Christian, Jewish, and Muslim poetry and spiritual texts from the period of the Convivencia in Spain and from contemporary Middle Eastern poets in the context of fiber art work. Ms. Wohl emphasizes the striking parallels between Arabic and Hebrew texts, both rich in the poetry of spiritual love, with common themes of exile, nostalgia for Andalusia, mistrust of enemies, and yearning for reconciliation. The catalyst for “Birds of Longing” was the shocking events of September 11, 2001. In the years after September 11th, as many Muslims were demonized, she felt the urgent necessity as an artist to contribute to a better understanding among Christians, Jews and Muslims. As the situation in the Middle East spirals downward, and xenophobia is encouraged in our own country, Ms. Wohl believes it is all the more important to encourage continuing interfaith/multicultural conversation.
