Multi-Faith Prayer for Peace Group Celebrates 60 Years in June
From the Orlando Sentinal
Gustav Niebuhr, Sister Joan Chittister, and Zen Master Bernie Glassman will be among those participating in a conference celebrating the 60th anniversary of Fellowship in Prayer, a multi-faith nonprofit forced on â€śprayer for peace,â€ť on the campus of Princeton University.
TheÂ June 24-27 conference will also feature a gala performance byÂ Salman Ahmad,Â lead singer of theÂ band Junoon which has been described asÂ â€ťthe U2 of Pakistan.â€ť
The conference,Â PRAYER: An Answer for the 21st Century, offers a unique opportunity to join others in identifying and claiming the values and practices within and across faith traditions that are foundational for peace, justice and global sustainability.
â€śOur world is deeply in need of interfaith cooperation,â€ť says Janet Haag, Fellowship in Prayerâ€™s Executive Director, â€śand we can think of no better way to mark our 60th anniversary than to invite people to join us in committing themselves to social change based on a broad, inclusive spiritual and social consciousness.â€ť
