KAMLOOPS—The Multi-faith Chaplaincy at Thompson Rivers University (TRU) is opening its arms to the Kamloops community on Wednesday, Feb. 5. Everyone is welcome to attend Life, Grief and Fear: How Faith Responds—a panel dialogue followed by a question and answer session around multi-faith perspectives to mark World Interfaith Harmony Week.

World Interfaith Harmony Week, Feb. 1 to 7, is “a way to promote harmony between all people regardless of their faith,” according to the United Nations.

This event offers audience members a chance to expand their spiritual understanding. Each panelist will share their faith’s views, then the floor will open up for a question and answer period.

Rev. LeAnn Blackert of Wild Church BC is moderator. The panel consists of an eclectic group of faith representatives:

  • Muhammad Yaffa, Islamic Centre
  • Tomas Bijok, Wiccan
  • Justin Young, Indigenous Man
  • Brian Mitchell, Christian
  • Lindsey Tyne Johnson, Judaism

Where: Brown Family House of Learning, room 190

When: 7 to 8:30 p.m., Thursday, Feb. 5. Doors open at 6:45 p.m.

Attendance is free. Learn more and register at tru.ca/chaplaincy.

“This event is an opportunity to hear dialogue from a wide diversity of voices on faithful living. Our individual faith is a cornerstone for navigating life whether it be school, family, work or world conditions,” said Patricia Davies of Spiritual Connections Kamloops and the Multi-faith Chaplaincy.
