‘Reconciliation and Forgiveness’ Conference

Forgiveness and Reconciliation Interfaith Water Ceremony

2009 UN Year of Reconciliation

Forgiveness and Reconciliation Conference Full Report October 4th 2009

Convened in Friends Meeting House on October 4th 2009, the conference  included an Interfaith Water Ceremony and presentations by many faith and community leaders. Connie Rennie wrote of the afternoon, 'Differences are often emphasized between faiths and cultures, but by listening to the words of each of the leaders at the event today, one clear message was portrayed; forgiveness is a key aspect of a strong life of faith, which when practiced leads to peace within oneself, naturally allowing you to bring peace to others, as is described in Buddhist psychology, "He who loves himself will harm not another".’ Photo Link from the afternoon conference.   Read (more )
