The Charter will present three separate offerings: a Interfaith Tea in its home community, and two radio-style calls. Description for all events: "We’ve come a long way to be together, you and I” is the theme for this year's Charter for Compassion’s contribution to the World Interfaith Harmony Week. Our two-part program will delve deeply into the real purpose of “Interfaith” and explore how its concept should be a guiding light into the harmony that is possible through interfaith practice which is the true foundation of living in a more peaceful and just world. Getting to know the other as the Jewish philosopher, Martin Buber implied, is the ability to look at another from a different perspective, not leaving our own perspective behind, but broadening our understanding of the other—totally recognizing our willingness to accept an “I” and “Thou” relationship that is not separated by culture or faith or other bounds. This relationship conceivably leads us to the threshold of realizing the Eternal “Thou.”
From 7:00am until 4:00pm
