Evening of interfaith dialogue

On Thursday, April 14, at 7 p.m. St. John the Divine Anglican Church will be hosting an evening, which seeks to promote interfaith dialogue, acceptance and understanding.

This evening will be exploring First Nations spirituality, and is part of a series of four evenings that St. John’s and Unity Comox Valley have been facilitating this spring.

There will be a time for group discussions and questions and answers. The evening will conclude with refreshments.

Our presenter for the evening will be Phil Umpherville (Cree elder).

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and there is no admission fee.

In a world currently torn apart and divided by sectarian hatred and violence we are confident that it’s possible to find healing, common ground, and to build lasting and healthy relationships by listening, sharing, and honouring our differences and what makes us unique.

St. John the Divine is located at 579 5th Street in Courtenay.

For more info please call the office at 250-334-4331.
