World Interfaith Harmony Week

In News by


This week is the second time World Interfaith Harmony Week is being celebrated. As the website states, “The World Interfaith Harmony Week is based on the pioneering work of The Common Word initiative. This initiative, which started in 2007, called for Muslim and Christian leaders to engage in a dialogue based on two common fundamental religious Commandments; Love of God, and Love of the Neighbour, without nevertheless compromising any of their own religious tenets.” This week is a reminder of the importance of spiritual hospitality, making room for others in our hearts and minds, as we strive to be peacemakers in our communities. I will be involved in two programs this week as part of World Interfaith Harmony week. One is for Canterbury School parents and the other is open to all who are interested. Hopefully I will see you at either the open house or the movie.

Canterbury School parents are invited to an open house hosted by the Haven Interfaith Parents (HIP) to learn about the multi-faith efforts occurring at Canterbury School. The open house will be Tuesday, February 7th from 7-9 pm in the Haven (located in the Middle School). The questions which will be discussed are on the HIP page.

A Seed of Common Ground (an interfaith group in Fort Wayne) is sponsoring the movie “Cities of Light” with a discussion to follow. The movie and discussion will be Wednesday, February 8th from 7-9 pm at Allen County Public Library, Meeting room C (Main floor, southeast end, close to Dunkin’ Donuts.
