World Interfaith Harmony Week is celebrated annually during the first week of February. It seeks to spread the message of harmony and tolerance among the followers of the three monotheistic faiths; Christianity, Islam and Judaism, and all the world’s religions.
Why is interfaith work important? Why should we bother trying to understand the religious and spiritual viewpoints of others? Is it worth the struggle to find common ground when everyone else seems to cling to the idea that they possess the one truth about the nature of the Divine?
This age-appropriate, thought-provoking assembly asks students to consider exploring what they don’t know and hopefully arrive at a new understanding of the other.
Comprising of a 17-slide power-point presentation, detailed notes, and a prayer for interfaith harmony, this informative assembly will save you hours of preparation time, simply download and go.
The presentation can be used in a number of ways;
• for a school assembly
• as part of a lesson
• as an introduction to interfaith harmony activities.
