Inclusion & the Power of Love: Pursuing Global Understanding, Reconciliation, and Change

April 18, 2018 7 – 8:30 p.m.

Join us for a Pre-Parliament Event!

Join us as Imam Abdul Malik Mujahid and Rev. Larry Greenfield speak to the 2018 Parliament of the World's Religions theme: "The Promise of Inclusion & the Power of Love." Come and learn about the 2018 Parliament gathering and how you can be involved!

The Parliament of the World's Religions was created to cultivate harmony among the world's religious and spiritual communities and foster their engagement with the world and its guiding institutions in order to achieve a just, peaceful, and sustainable world.

"The Promise of Inclusion & the Power of Love" as its next theme, organizers of the 7th Parliament of the World's Religions are looking for world-changing outcomes from the 12,000 or more delegates who will convene in Toronto, Canada, November 1 - 7, 2018.

The world's oldest and most diverse global interfaith event will mark its 125-year anniversary by bringing together leaders and followers of more than 200 spiritual and secular traditions to "pursue global understanding, reconciliation, and change" in the world's most culturally diverse city.
Sponsored by Nazareth College's Hickey Center for Interfaith Studies and Dialogue and Center for Spirituality.
