Julian Speaks is a community-building speaker series developed by
Julian of Norwich Anglican Church, in Ottawa. Guest speakers are invited to raise awareness about needs in our community, and to help us to discern God’s plan for our new parish ministry focus. All are welcome to join us for the third event in this series: Under One Sky: The Multi-faith Scene in Ottawa, on Thursday, June 16th from 7:00pm to 9:30pm. The event includes presentations, facilitator-led discussions about the topic, Light refreshments and fellowship. A free-will offering will be collected to help cover costs.
Presentations and discussion will take place in the Julian of Norwich Sanctuary and Church Hall (9 Rossland Avenue, at Merivale Road). There is free parking in the church lot, on the street, and at the Elizabeth Wyn Wood School across the street.
Abstract: Five speakers will discuss multi-faith issues from Christian, Muslin, Jewish, Hindu and Sikh perspectives. The Reverend Canon John Wilker-Blakely, multi-faith representative in the Diocese of Ottawa, will be addressing the Christian perspective. More information will follow.
Each speaker will be invited to address the following questions:
i. What are the top five things you would like everyone to know about your faith tradition?
ii. What is multi-faith dialogue? Why is multi-faith dialogue important?
iii. What is currently happening in the Ottawa region that highlights and supports multi-faith dialogue and relationships?
iv. What more could happen in the Ottawa region that would highlight and support multi-faith dialogue and relationships?
