Faith Leaders Call for Unity and Peace
Tuesday, 16 December 2014
The Faith Communities Council of Victoria would like to make the following statement on promoting harmony:
CELEBRATION was the theme for the Interfaith Network Annual Gathering held on 22 October 2014, as the Interfaith Network, the oldest Network in Australia, celebrated its 25th anniversary.
On the 23 October 2014, Casey MultiFaith Network held its 7th Annual Gathering at the Nossal High auditorium in Berwick. The gathering, entitled “Harmony in Diversity”, was chiefly organized by Pam Mamouney OAM, Vice President of the network.
On October 18th 2014 a seminar took place at Monash University in Melbourne, sponsored by the Universal Peace Federation (UPF) and the Women's Federation for World Peace (WFWP). The seminar was the first in a series that will explore the role of religion, morality and interdisciplinary perspectives in addressing current moral, humanitarian and peace challenges facing our world and took the view that the best solutions to these challenges can emerge if the diverse perspectives of spiritual leaders, scholars, diplomats, government leaders, experts in geopolitics and leaders of NGOs can be combined.
