Interfaith Film Night
Me, The “Other”
Wednesday Feb 5, 2020 / 6:30 pm-9:00 pm
Black Box Theatre
In the Queen Elizabeth Park community and cultural centre:
2302 Bridge Rd, Oakville
The film is the centerpiece of a platform for creating conversations about what connects us and what keeps us apart.
With this film, we set out to tell stories of a diverse cast of characters who are on some level experiencing prejudice. While they are from various backgrounds, in that deep place inside, they are all essentially one… and we are one with them. My personal hope for this film is to expose that sacred place inside where beyond the clouded isms of race, religion, class, gender, age, sexual orientation, physical appearance—lies a place of light, warmth, hope, and pure love called the human soul.
Celebrating FAITH and CULTURE
Monday, August 5th (CIVIC HOLIDAY), 12pm – 4pm
Central Park Bandshell, 2331 New Street at Drury Lane, Burlington
(on New Street just west of the Guelph Line)
The Golden Rule
The Golden Rule
The Golden Rule of treating others the way we would like to be treated, which is shared by all religions, is a primary example that demonstrates this principle.
First Interfaith Peace Camp in Halton a big success
During the inaugural session of the Halton Interfaith Peace camp, which took place in Oakville from July 9-13, 2018, campers came to Shaarei-Beth El synagogue to learn about Judaism.
The Interfaith council of Halton has in its mission the goal of bringing people of different faiths together for education and fellowship, but it was even more important after the shooting at a mosque in Quebec in January of 2017.
