The Center for Reconciliation (CFR) is hosting three events that explore various expressions of “reconciliation” based on Dr. Martin Luther King’s teachings about The Beloved Community. Each event encourage attendees to explore the meaning and practice of reconciliation. In a world that is increasingly in conflict, this is an opportunity for people to share expressions of reconciliation in word, music and art.
The series of events will begin with four faith leaders reflecting on “Reconciliation as Expressed in Four Faith Traditions" on Thursday, January 11, at 7 pm at Grace Church, 300 Westminister Street, Providence. The speakers will include:
- Rabbi Howard Voss-Altman– Reconciliation in Judaism
- Mufti Ikram ul Haq - Reconciliation in Islam
- Swami Yogatmananda - Reconciliation in Hinduism
- Bishop Jeffrey William - Reconciliation in Christianity
Reflections will be interspersed with music renditions by the Grace Church Choir, members of the RI Philharmonic Orchestra Music School and guest musicians. Participants will be invited to explore their own understanding of reconciliation.
