In by


Join us to celebrate the World Interfaith Harmony Week 2016 at Sunshine Hospital. This event will be held on Thursday 4th February 2016 10am -12noon. It will provide a platform for western region interfaith groups and people of goodwill to promote harmony between all people regardless of their faith. The World Interfaith Harmony Week 2016 event with its theme 'Connecting to Earth' will present religious voices from the recent Climate Change Conference where many faith leaders advocated for moral obligation to address climate change. There will also be an opportunity to learn about and join in the Labyrinth walk as a way of connecting to the earth. The labyrinth comes from ancient traditions, physically used as a contemplative tool for reflection or meditation in many cultures throughout history.
