Launch Event: Week of Interfaith Harmony

With Guest Mayor Naheed Nenshi

Interfaith Harmony week began with the gift of words at the launch on February 1 at City Hall. There were prayers from diverse traditions, a stirring call to action from our Mayor and, surprising himself, Constable Gary Woods had us all praying the Prayer of St. Francis. Over the next week NewScoop will be posting some short video clips from that event.

We begin a new week trembling a bit from recent shock waves.

He is carving an ever smaller global community into fearful enclaves of them and us.
