Upcoming Inter-Faith Network of Calgary meeting at the Calgary Buddhist Centre

The next meeting of the Inter-Faith Network of Calgary (IFNC) will be hosted by the Calgary Buddhist Centre, 207 6th St. NE on Sunday, November 21, 2010.

Our theme for this year is: 'The Ways We Worship'

IFNC is an informal and grassroots group of Calgarians, belonging to several faith traditions, who have come together to promote goodwill and mutual understanding.

We believe that this objective is best achieved by interaction and dialogue among the followers of different faiths. This belief is based on our conviction that while the general tendency is to highlight the differences among different faiths, a deeper study would reveal that we have more in common than is generally believed.

We hope that through these gatherings, we will encourage mutual respect and peace in our community.

We meet once a month to discuss questions related to our personal spirituality and religious practice.

The venues of the gatherings rotate among the places of worship.
