There are many opportunities to participate during the United Nations’ World Interfaith Harmony Week, too many to engage all of them. However, it is important to try! The challenge is to find at least one event to attend even if it means cancelling something else. This is important! And even better if you can fill your passport with stamps. A list of events is available at https://www.calgaryinterfaithcouncil.org/world-interfaith-harmony-week/
Unfortunately this Sunday at Living Spirit won’t be one of those opportunities, but not for lack of trying. The idea was to have a pulpit exchange and we were matched with B’nai Tikvah, our neighbouring synagogue and former home of Riverview United. Scheduling difficulties ruled this weekend out though. All is not lost however as we will be working out another weekend and, hopefully, our congregation will be able to attend a service there as well as hosting their congregation on a Sunday morning. I really don’t want it to be just a clergy swap! The plan is to have it happen before summer, so we will let you know when we have the details. Stay tuned!
Our focus in worship this Sunday will still be Inter-Faith harmony, so please consider being a part of our struggle in overcoming brokenness, finding our strength and humanity, and taking another few steps toward harmony with our sisters and brothers in faith and peace in our world.
