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 "If we are broadened by a new experience -- and it might be a new experience of the Sacred in some way that we hadn't experienced the Sacred before -- if we can be open to being widened by experiences then our experience of our own spiritual path or our own spiritual faith will become deeper." - Kusumita Pedersen, Parliament of the World's Religions Trustee and Co-Chair of the The Interfaith Center of New York
URI North America Thank you to the Charter for Compassion Cooperation Circle for sharing this new book on forgiveness. "What exactly is forgiveness? Is it possible to forgive somebody who has murdered your loved one, abused or once kidnapped you, and move on? How can we break the toxic cycle of revenge and seek new narratives?"
URI North America Last month, URI North America hosted a webinar on how grassroots leaders can get involved in the fight against human trafficking. Beatrice Kahn, vice president of National Council of Jewish Women (NCJW), shares resources for fighting trafficking on a grassroots level!
URI North America Congratulations to the Marin Interfaith Council young adults on their successful "Rhythms of Faith In the Millennial Generation" night! From MIC: "Youth from 7 religious contexts gathered to share prayer, poetry, spoken word, hip hop, song, gospel, and even spiritual dance! Music truly moves the soul, and what better way to share traditions from other faiths than through music! Many thanks to all the artists and to everyone who joined us."
