URI North America is the North American chapter of URI, a global network dedicated to promoting enduring daily interfaith cooperation to end religiously motivated violence and to create cultures of peace, justice, and healing for the Earth and all living beings.
URI North America Yesterday's Sacred Spaces Tour in cooperation with InterSpiritual Centre of Vancouver Society CC was a delight. Join us for the second installment: Two day-long guided tours of some of the most significant sacred spaces in the Lower Mainland of British Columbia, Canada have been organized to take place in May and June, 2015. This is an initiative of the Ecumenical Multifaith Unit (EMU) of the Anglican Diocese of New Westminster, and the InterSpiritual Centre of Vancouver. The tours of several different faith and indigenous spaces throughout the Lower Mainland include a Buddhist temple, a Roman Catholic cathedral, a synagogue, a mosque, a Sikh temple, a First Nations ceremonial space, an Ismaili Jamatkhana and a Ukrainian Orthodox cathedral. Participants will travel together from each venue in a chartered bus, with lunch being hosted by members of one of the faith communities. An active exchange of information and discussions will be encouraged amongst all who are interested in interfaith experiences. By listening to one another and learning from one another, we hope to come to some appreciation of each other by also experiencing each other’s sacred spaces.
