Upcoming Inter-Faith Network of Calgary meeting at Calgary Buddhist Temple

The next meeting of the Inter-Faith Network of Calgary (IFNC) will be hosted by Calgary Buddhist Temple (207 6th St. N.E.) on Sunday, February 10 from 10:30 am - 1:30 pm. The first hour will be sharing services with the Buddhist community, followed by refreshments and a dialogue (~ 1 hour) with two members who will share their experiences living as Buddhists in Calgary.

Our theme for this year is: 'Putting a Face to Faith'.

At each venue we will be attending part of a service with the congregants and then joining them for light refreshments followed by a discussion with a few individuals from that faith, regarding their own practice. A donation of $2 per person at each venue would be appreciated.

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.
