Multi-faith gathering to affirm diversity

Affirmation of religious freedom and diversity is the theme of a multi-faith gathering in Kelowna on Saturday.

The Unitarian Fellowship of Kelowna will host the gathering on Saturday, September 11, at 7:30 p.m.

On the anniversary of a tragedy that has increased tension and misunderstanding between religious groups, several of Kelowna’s prominent religious leaders and friends will gather together to affirm the core message of love and peace which is at the heart of all major religious tenets, and to remember those of all traditions who have been victims of violence.

Representatives of Muslim, Sikh, Unitarian, Jewish, Christian, Pagan and other faith traditions will be joining together to celebrate religious freedom and diversity.

“I hope this event signals the beginning of on-going and meaningful interfaith collaboration in Kelowna” says Rev. Linda Weaver-Horton of the Unitarian Fellowship of Kelowna.

Rev. Tyler Gingrich of All Saints Lutheran Church says, “we hope that this anniversary will engage people from all backgrounds in thoughtful conversation about faith and life.”

The Unitarian Fellowship of Kelowna (UFK) is a non-creedal, theologically liberal religious community.

The UFK serves the Okanagan at their fellowship located at 1310 Bertram Street in downtown Kelowna.
