The interfaith movement is a rich mosaic of efforts, ranging from theological discourse to practical coalitions. Some interreligious harmony work is built on ethereal, ethical, and theological foundations. And some is grounded in an earthy, urgent common interest or in response to a crisis or threat, said Katherine Marshall to the UN Special Event on World Interfaith Harmony: Multi-religious Partnership for Sustainable Development.
World Interfaith Harmony Week, like the International Day of Peace, offers us chances to engage people and institutions in the spirit of the United Nations, said Katherine Marshall to the General Assembly of the United Nations.
The Missing Millennium Development Goal is a petition to the governments of the United Nation’s member states, religious leaders and civil society to recognise that the interfaith collaboration is key to achieving the eight Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).
