The Heart of Faith – The Parliament of the World’s Religions

April 10, 2015, in Videos > Online Event, by

The Council for a Parliament of the World’s Religions is an organisation that aims to bring people of faith together to work for a more just, peaceful and sustainable world. Since 1993, the Council for a Parliament of World Religions has organised a total of four Parliaments which have been held in Chicago, Cape Town, Barcelona and Melbourne. The fifth Parliament will be held in 2015.

This video, created for the 2015 Parliament of the World’s Religions, beautifully encapsulates the vision behind this worldwide interfaith movement.

The global interfaith community brings the heart of faith to life at the Parliament of the World’s Religions, the oldest, largest, and most inclusive interfaith event known as the mother of the interfaith movement. By bringing together thousands of people of over 80 nations, 50 faith traditions, from the centers of mosques, gurdwaras, cathedrals and synagogues to sharing a global event, participants celebrate the beauty of faith, get to know, understand and appreciate the gifts of others, and commit together strong in each tradition to face the world’s critical challenges in harmony.

The 2015 Parliament of the World’s Religions will be held in Salt Lake City, Utah from October 15-19. You can find out more about the 2015 Parliament on the website, or through their Facebook and Twitter pages.

I am looking for a recorded interfaith musical program. Could be audio or video. Are there any out there?
