Multi-faith

The local Unitarian minister and I have been in touch this week to organize a multi-faith gathering for September 11th.
With news of a pastor in the States who was threatening to mark this anniversary of the NY tragedy by burning the Koran, I think it’s fitting to gather together as diverse faith groups to show the community that we care about each other.
Religion doesn’t often get positive press these days. There are tensions between groups, even within the same faith. It’s important to do the work of seeking understanding and acceptance.
Religion is also a conveyor of culture. So our multi-faith gathering is an opportunity to share our diverse backgrounds and learn of each other’s culture.
Peace to all in the world – those with and those not claiming a faith tradition.
