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 “prayer for peace,” on the campus of Princeton University.

The June 24-27 conference will also feature a gala performance by Salman Ahmad, lead singer of the band Junoon which has been described as ”the U2 of Pakistan.”

The conference, 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.

“Our world is deeply in need of interfaith cooperation,” says Janet Haag, Fellowship in Prayer’s Executive Director, “and 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.”
