World Interfaith Harmony Week

wihw-logo-tagline

The first week of February each year (February 1-7) has been designated by the United Nations as World Interfaith Harmony Week. Open to all people around the world who “love the good and love the neighbor,” WIHW is intended to focus attention on the common values shared by people of good will and understand how those commonalities outweigh our differences.

Groups and individuals are encouraged to sponsor events during this week and to share the information on the World Interfaith Harmony Week website.

One goal of the Week is to make the ongoing work of interfaith groups to be made more visible to the world around. The thousands of events organized by these groups often go unnoticed not only by the general public, but also by other interfaith groups themselves. This week allows for these groups to become aware of each other and strengthen the movement by building ties and avoiding duplicating each others’ efforts.

Each day from Monday to Friday, February 3-7, the Interfaith Center at the Presidio will post a question to their Facebook Page and they invite you to respond with a word, a picture, a quote and the like. If you “like” the ICP page you can get updates and information. Then visit ICP every day during the week and join the conversation!

Locally Shasta County Interfaith Forum (SCIF) organizes events throughout the year.
