Sustainable Peace and the UN World Faith Harmony Week

Sustainable Peace through Interfaith Harmony

February 23, 2019

Co-organizers

St. Peter’s Episcopal Church, Bennington, VT

(Event listed on UN Calendar for World Faith Harmony)

 

In October 2010, the UN General Assembly adopted a resolution calling for World Interfaith Harmony Week as a way to promote harmony between all people regardless of their faith.  In the resolution, the General Assembly, points out that mutual understanding and interreligious dialogue constitute important dimensions of a culture of peace and establishes World Interfaith Harmony Week.  Following this resolution, Interfaith Harmony events are held throughout the world during the month of February.

 

At the core of all the faith systems and traditions is the recognition that we are all in this together and that we need to love and support one another to live in harmony and peace in a sustainable world. It is important to increase our efforts to spread the message of good neighborliness based on our common humanity, a message shared by all faith traditions.  The theme for the observance of the Interfaith Harmony for 2019 is therefore “Sustainable Peace through Interfaith Harmony.”

To this end, Zion Episcopal Church (Manchester, VT), St. Peter’s Episcopal Church (Bennington, VT) with support from the Yale Alum Non-Profit Alliance (YANA) for Vermont will organize an interactive discussion on interfaith harmony and sustainable peace, on February 23, 2019.  

 

This inter-active discussion will take place at Zion, from 3:00-5:00 PM, followed by a 30 minutes of prayer – February 23, 2019.  Zionis located at 5167 Main Street, Manchester Center VT.
