World religion day

World Religion Day 2014

"A Sacred Life: Beliefs in Action"
World Religion Day was founded in 1950 by the Bahá'ís of the United States, and since has spread worldwide, becoming an officially recognized event by many municipal governments and officials. It has since incorporated speakers and performers from the majority of the worlds religions and cultural backgrounds, and events are organized yearly by a coordinated effort from members of all religions. This event was first recognized in the City of Ottawa in 2000 by the city's Mayor, and this tradition has continued ever since.

The purpose of World Religion Day is to promote understanding and dialogue between the followers of all religions, to call attention to the common foundation of their spiritual principles, and to emphasize that "Religion must be the cause of unity". Free admission. Light refreshments will be served.
Sponsored by the Bahá'í Community of Ottawa

    It was a wonderful opportunity to learn how individuals from different faiths work their faith on a day to day basis. It seems to me that we are all trying to reach the same goal. The Tamir Choir though, I have to admit, pulled my heart strings. Many thanks and blessings to the Baha'i community for setting this up.

    I am so sorry to have missed this. I simply couldn't get away from family commitments. Was this session recorded or videotaped? It would be great to listen to the conversation... many thanks!

    Hejman I will try to make it, but this may be a tough one to get to... My family and I have numerous things to be done this afternoon, and still have many responsibilities. I very much support these kind of events where people can respectfully learn about varying faiths. This is definately what we promote here at OIC. :) Blessings

    Rabbi Arie I am very glad to see you here... I am now studying the Old Testament and would appreciate your insights. It is extremely rich and much is overlooked, and fogged by the ancient contexts. True scholarship would insist that we must be challenged NOT to read into these foundation texts our own interpretations and doctrines. Definitely struggling with archaeological evidence for Exodus.. help :)
