Among Friends: Part 1

Friends and To-Be-Friends of the Parliament of the World’s Religions:

Over the coming months, I’ll be sharing some hopes and dreams, some thoughts and observations, and lots of information about the event that takes place in Toronto on November 1-7, this year.

It will be, at least initially, just one perspective. But I don’t want to keep it that way. I’ll be inviting your questions and responses.

So here goes…

PARLIAMENT

We’re convening a “Parliament” – the seventh in our 125-year history – and inviting you to it. But not in the usual and contemporary meaning of that word (i.e., as a legislative body or a building). It’s the core meaning of the word we have in mind: to speak and listen for the sake of understanding and action. As the Oxford English Dictionary has it: a spell or bout of speaking, a colloquy, a consultation, a formal conference or council for the discussion of some matter or matters of general importance. We’re inviting you to that kind of Parliament.
