Our world continues to be beset by conflict and intolerance with rising number of refugees and the internally displaced persons in a hostile and unwelcoming world. Sadly, we are also witnessing actions and messages of hate spreading discord among people. The need for spiritual guidance has never been greater. It is imperative that we escalate efforts to spread the message of love and harmony based on our common humanity, a message shared by all faith traditions.
