Interfaith Harmony Week was unanimously adopted by the United Nations in 2010 to be observed during the first week of each February. ?Interfaith Harmony Week provides a platform each year when people of good will recognize that the common values they hold far outweigh their differences.

To mark Interfaith Harmony Week, Seattle University School of Theology and Ministry again is hosting a special reception for you and other key members of religious leadership in our community.

This year our chosen theme is: "What on Earth are we here for?" To kick off our evening, we have an esteemed panel speaking on the evening's theme: Dr. Connie Kanter, CFO/VP for Finance & Business Affairs at Seattle University, will be speaking from the Orthodox Jewish tradition; Taijo Imanaka, Head Priest at the Seattle Koyasan Buddhist Temple, will be speaking from the Shingon Buddhist tradition; Verlon Fosner, from the North Seattle Congregation & developer of "dinner churches," will be speaking from the Evangelical Christian tradition; and Rev. Jon Luopa, Minister at University Unitarian Church, will be speaking from the Unitarian Universalist tradition.

Facilitated discussions with colleagues and peers at each table will conclude the evening. These table conversations have been the highlight of past events and your participation will give insight to us as we look to the future of interfaith relations in our region.

More information coming soon - read about past events, here.
