“Harmony finds itself in the human heart, when we join our loving energies with others, we are like musical instruments, we make a song, we are like a river that comes together to form a powerful flow of energy.” Sally Mahé, URI Senior Consultant
World Interfaith Harmony Week (WIHW) is celebrated the world over every first week of February to promote harmony among people irrespective of their faith. The initiative is based on the purpose of promoting “Love of God and Love of the Neighbor, or Love of the Good and Love of the Neighbor.”
This year, URI regional coordinators held four cross-regional virtual events all connected to celebrating World Interfaith Harmony Week. People from different countries and regions participated in these virtual events which included: The Intercontinental Interfaith Quiz, Stories for an Open Heart, Magic of Food Festival, and Harmony in Diversity, an interreligious and intercultural, art, music, and food festival.
The events provided Cooperation Circles, Individual Members, and donors a great opportunity to strengthen their relationships, learn from each other, connect, and appreciate the impact of cross-regional collaboration.
