World Interfaith Harmony Week

Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada (ELCIC) National Bishop Susan Johnson and Anglican Church of Canada (ACC) Archbishop and Primate Linda Nicholls shared a joint message encouraging members of both churches to observe the annual United Nations World Interfaith Harmony Week, February 1-7 in ways that are meaningful to their local context.

Both churches are committed to pursuing friendship, peace, and common cause with their neighbours of diverse spiritual and religious backgrounds.

The World Interfaith Harmony Week provides a platform – one week in a year – when all interfaith groups and other groups of goodwill can show the world what a powerful movement they are. It is hoped that this initiative will provide a focal point from which people of goodwill can recognize that the common values they hold far outweigh the differences they have, and provide a strong dosage of peace and harmony to their communities.
