Of all the many stereotypes of Hong Kong, religiously diversified city is usually NOT one of them. Yet week in and week out Sacred Spaces visits neighborhoods in Hong Kong where many world religions from Asia, Europe, the Middle East, and the Indian subcontinent has a stake in here and thrives.
The Hong Kong Sacred Spaces Spiritual Roundtable Forum is returning with a series that I'm hoping will help us to broaden our understanding of some of the world religions that call Hong Kong home. Taken from a purely educational perspective, the spiritual roundtable series, is designed to be a place where people can discuss ideas of religion and spirituality in a safe environment. We will continue the series to include all the major religions here in HK but the first in our series is the often misunderstood faith of Islam.
We will be traveling to the Wan Chai Islamic Centre and Ammer Mosque there to talk with Imam Suliman Wong and staff about the Islamic Faith, the Qu'ran as well as any other aspects that we wish to explore. In addition, we will also have an opportunity to witness an early afternoon prayer service. Please don't miss this wonderful opportunity to meet with your neighbors and learn more about them.
