Church



The organizers of the G20 Interfaith Forum (held in Italy September 12–14) invited leaders of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to discuss religious freedom and its impact on minority religions.
And that’s what Elder Ronald A. Rasband of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles did. In his September 13 remarks in front of global religious leaders at the forum’s session on religious freedom and minority faiths, the Apostle spoke of the beginnings of the Church — itself once a minority. From its humble 19th-century start in New York and its turbulent times in Ohio, Missouri and Illinois, the Church is now a worldwide faith of nearly 17 million members.

Building Bridges Across Boundaries

World Interfaith Harmony Week is an annual event observed during the first week of February. In 2021 we also mark the inaugural International Day of Human Fraternity on 4 February.

World Interfaith Harmony Week was proclaimed by the General Assembly in 2010. In its resolution, the General Assembly, pointed out that mutual understanding and interreligious dialogue constitute important dimensions of a culture of peace and established World Interfaith Harmony Week as a way to promote harmony between all people regardless of their faith.

Recognizing the imperative need for dialogue among different faiths and religions to enhance mutual understanding, harmony and cooperation among people, the General Assembly encourages all States to spread the message of interfaith harmony and goodwill in the world’s churches, mosques, synagogues, temples and other places of worship during that week, on a voluntary basis and according to their own religious traditions or convictions.

In Memoriam of Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks

November 09, 2020 02:26 PM
The world lost a genuine beacon of hope and light on November 7, 2020 when Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks passed away. The gaping hole left in the world at his passing will serve as a reminder of the life he lived and the words he so eloquently spoke and wrote.
