It is my pleasure to invite you to join the Networks of Faith, Spirit and Action on CAN at http://my.compassionateactionnetwork.com/group/nicocan - as we begin to reflect on the events of 2011 that included the Interfaith Community Celebration, the Interfaith Seder, The Interfaith Leadership Summit, community dialogues on the intersections of faith and politics with our collaborations with Cascadia Center at Camp Brotherhood - so much has happened in such a short period of time.These incredibly moving and meaningful events had us celebrating each other with music, poetry, food and open dialogue bringing us closer together as neighbors of many faiths and philosophies, of diverse passions and politics.
How do we continue to encourage these events that honestly look at our communities not only as communities of faith - but of communities of inclusion, of diversity, and of compassion for ALL regardless of faith affiliation - or no faith affiliation? We connect. We connect. We connect.
Whether you live in Seattle - or Bangkok - or Rome - or India - please join us for the dialogue and invitations here and be encouraged to create communities of compassion in your own neighborhoods. We can help, and we'll be here.
Also consider finding Cascadia Center at Camp Brotherhood on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/pages/Cascadia-Center-at-Camp-Brotherhood-... - we will have many opportunities for you to come to this exquisite 220 acre parcel in Washington State on some of the most beautiful land ever created to walk, reflect, join us for meetings, for training, or for retreats that all focus on creating peace, justice and compassion in our complex world.
I am excited about what we are creating in 2012 and I am encouraging you get connected with us here, so we can connect with you "out there"!
