Pacific Rim Education FoundationParticipating in this global celebration, a local nonprofit, the Pacific Rim Education Foundation (PREF), is sponsoring a unique event in Kona. It will involve representatives of various spiritual traditions presenting favorite passages from their sacred scriptures, offering comments and welcoming discussion. This will allow voices from different traditions to be heard and explained, hopefully opening a realm of greater understanding and appreciation by all. The program is to include wisdom readings from the Hindu, Christian, Buddhist, Unificationist and New Thought traditions; there are also to be experiences of chanting, music and dance. All this will be preceded by a potluck dinner. “Interfaith respect and connection is a critical component in moving toward a more spiritually enlightened and peaceful world. This event is an opportunity in Kona to contribute to that process,” said Farley Jones, president of PREF.
