Festival of Lights - Toronto, ON, Dec 7, 2014

candle photoMany religions use light — inner and outer — to symbolize their prayers and hopes for what is right with the world, especially at this holiday season. Representatives from the Baha'i, Buddhist, Christian, Divine Feminine, Indigenous, Hindu, Jewish, Moslem, Sufi and Zoroastrian traditions will share with us their faith, their passion and their creativity in sacred words, poetry, chants, songs and music.

There will be plenty of light to go around, with a candle lit for each religion, and a candle to symbolize our unity and mutual support. There will be opportunities to participate in many of the chants. A festive interspiritual celebration!

A donation of $10 is suggested; no-one will be turned away for lack of funds.

The event will be held at Luc Sculpture, which is located at 663 Greenwood Avenue, steps north of Danforth, and a block away from the Greenwood Subway Station. (map)

Sponsored by the Toronto Area Interfaith Council (TAIC) and by the Awakening Heart Circle, a Sufi Order International centre in Toronto.
