Last Saturday, the Multicultural Women’s Sewing Group where I do volunteering work held one of its six yearly events called Faith, Food, and Fabric Fun. These events focus on discovering and understanding different faiths and cultures.
This one was about the World Interfaith Harmony Week, an initiative of the United Nation to promote harmony between all people regardless of their religion.
There was music, dancing, a puppet show and a craft activity. We invited people to write messages of love and peace in their own language and in English on a piece of fabric. We then hanged these messages on a tree.
We also invited people to write their stories about how they practice their faith. I wrote some of these stories if people had limited English.
And, we always share delicious food.
It was a great day and it was interesting to meet people from different backgrounds and share with them about where they come from.
Have you heard about the World Interfaith Harmony Week?
