World Interfaith Harmony Week was proclaimed by the United Nations General Assembly in 2010, in a resolution that states, “mutual understanding and interreligious dialogue constitute important dimensions of a culture of peace” and so they “established World Interfaith Harmony Week as a way to promote harmony between all people regardless of their faith.”
The Tri-City Interfaith Council is holding a local Interfaith Harmony Day event on Saturday, February 3, 1:00-3:30, at Niles Discovery Church. The afternoon event will give space for many different faith traditions to be represented by their local communities in small group guided conversations. Participants from local communities of Atheist, Baha’i, Buddhist, Christian, Hindu, Jewish, Muslim, Sikh, Unitarian Universalist, and more will have booths showcasing their beliefs, traditions and sacred objects.
Everyone is encouraged to attend.
