Initiatives of Change will host a 3 speaker panel and interfaith dialogue examining extremism in religion on Saturday 11 June 2016 at Armagh, Toorak.
Interfaith Dialogue is the frank exchange of lived experience of a religion, respecting the confines and boundaries of the teachings of that religion, a respect that is extended to all participants in that dialogue. Dialogue is not simply listen-reply; it has elements of reflection, understanding, stand-under the communication and then reply with insight, intellect and intuition.
The world is awash with extremism and the evening news is oft-times ugly. Is there extremism in my own faith group or faith community? These are questions worthy of exploration. Understanding extremism, even in my religion! Come for a panel discussion on 11 June, 4:30 – 6:30 pm at Armagh, with members of the Indonesian community providing a dance performance and dinner afterwards. A very special evening…
Initiatives of Change (IofC) is a world-wide movement of people of diverse cultures and backgrounds, who are committed to the transformation of society through changes in human motives and behaviour, starting with our own.
