Read Some Letters of Support

 

“As a Presbyterian, ecumenical Christian, and scholar of Islam travelling widely in the Muslim world, I am deeply happy to support the UN Resolution in response to King Abdullah’s proposal, as delivered and illuminated by Prince Ghazi.”
— Theodore Friend

 

“Ministers, Imams, Rabbis and other preachers and religious leaders often have little time to deliver vital messages to their congregations, and this is why devoting one week a year to interfaith harmony is practical and powerful. When one preacher’s message is echoed around the world, it has great resonance and power. With one sermon or lecture a year, together we can set a new standard for religious leadership and harmony.”
— Dr Ingrid Mattson, Hartford Seminary

 

“As we approach the season of Peace and Goodwill let sus shoe a little more Love and respect for as much people as we can. My experience of God is ’To love my neighbour as myself’ I dont propose for one minute that it is easy but it is attainable with more patience and tolerance. ”
— Veronica E. Barnes, Blue Mountain Women’s Group

 

“It was so wonderful to see this fine initiative succeed!! We, at the Interfaith Encounter Association, are working on an on-going basis to build interfaith harmony in the Holy Land (see attached data sheet) and will be happy and honored to take part in the Interfaith Harmony Week!!”
— Dr Yehuda Stolov, Interfaith Encounter Association

 

“As an Episcopal priest who has spent his entire life studying and living in the Muslim world, I support this welcome initiative to bring minds and hearts, prayerful and hopeful people from all corners of the Abrahamic tent, to focus on the need for vigilance, engagement and trust in the pursuit of a world transformed by the higher calling of Divine Truth. In the words of the Noble Book, "What is the reward for pursuit of the Good and the Beautiful but (further) pursuit of the Good and the Beautiful?" Surat ar-Rahman(Q 55: 60)”
— The Reverend Dr Bruce B Lawrence, Duke University

 

“The Surrey Interfaith Council is excited and proud to participate again in the United Nations World Interfaith and Harmony Week. As a local group of diverse religions and worldviews in western Canada, we see this annual and global celebration of harmony as emblematic of a deep desire for peace, love, and justice, a desire which we endeavor to foster here in Surrey and which we are hopeful can take root in the hearts and minds of people across the globe.”
— Ethan Vanderleek, Multi-Faith Centre, Kwantlen Polytechnic University
