A Christian, a Muslim and a Hindu walk into a university together. And what happens next, according to community leaders, is no joke – walking together can build a more harmonious, more creative, more inspiring place to live.
“Representatives from Christianity, Islam and Hinduism will clarify their deepest treasures at the heart of the paths they follow and identify the principles and practices that can be used to promote harmonious community,” Broyles said. “Each presentation will pursue harmony by looking at principles and practices that promote unity and generational wisdom that can be passed on to our families and children.”
The free afternoon seminar is being organized by the UAH Offices of Diversity and Multicultural Affairs and by community organizations Asha Kiran, the Hindu Cultural Center of North Alabama and the Interfaith Mission Service. The local event is also listed as a part of the United Nations Master Schedule for World Interfaith Harmony Week. While the event is free, donations will be accepted, and organizers request that those coming let them know for planning purposes by emailingIMS@knology.net.
The goal of the afternoon seminar is to discover the value of achieving a “Beloved Community” and to conclude with a strategy for joint action to promote harmonious community.
