MANCHESTER, VT – In October 2010, the UN General Assembly unanimously adopted a resolution calling for events to promote World Interfaith Harmony in the month of February. The purpose is to foster mutual understanding through inter-religious dialogue. Following this resolution, Interfaith Harmony events are held throughout the world during the month of February, including this year in Manchester, VT.
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 to 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) 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. Zion is located at 5167 Main Street, Manchester Center VT.
