Faithful Living: Celebrating commonality in our diversity
A World Interfaith Harmony Week and Canada 150 Event for Students(high school and up)
This event exists with the purpose of getting youth engaged in interfaith dialogue with each other, while also exploring how it all fits in with Canadian society. The theme of this year’s World Interfaith Harmony Week is Reach Out and we believe that youth communities reaching out to each other is a great way to encompass this theme.
Herbie Kuhn, Public Address Announcer for the Toronto Raptors
Students will work in groups to answer one or two questions and then create a video, which IDI will collect and assemble into a longer piece to get an idea of how this group addresses interfaith and commonality in Canadian society. Some questions include: How do you see faith being observed in Canada? In the future, what does your faith look like in Canada? How do we share the joys and overcome the challenges that arise from the influences and interactions between culture and religion? How do we continue to live out our faiths to the fullest, be ourselves, and grow as persons of faith?
Lunch will be served.
