World Interfaith Harmony Breakfast | Feb. 2nd from 8am--10am | Scarritt-Bennett Center

posted Jan 20, 2011, 9:05 AM by Unknown user
“Recognizing the imperative need for dialogue among different faiths and religions in enhancing
mutual understanding, harmony and cooperation among people”, The United Nations passed
a resolution designating the first week of February each year as World Interfaith Harmony Week. In conjunction, World Interfaith Harmony Breakfasts are forming around the globe.
 
Please join us for the first annual World Interfaith Harmony Breakfast at Scarritt-Bennett on Wednesday, February 2nd from 8am--10am. 
 
The Tennessee Interfaith Harmony Breakfast honors the religious impulse without promoting any specific religion. Our goal is simple: to offer a safe haven for spiritual conversation. A place where friendships are forged through sharing food and questions and where community is grounded in hospitality, contemplative practice, and conversation.
