Merry Christmas

Behold! the angels said:
"O Mary! God giveth thee
Glad tidings of a Word
From Him: his name
Will be Christ Jesus,
The son of Mary, held in honour
In this world and the Hereafter
And of (the company of) those
Nearest to God."
Quran 3:45

Upcoming Inter-Faith Network of Calgary meeting at the Beth Tzedec Synagogue

The next meeting of the Inter-Faith Network of Calgary (IFNC) will be hosted by the Beth Tzedec Synagogue, 1325 Glenmore Tr. SW on Sunday, December 11, 2010 from 10:30 am - 12:30 pm.

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.
