Beyond Tolerance (Free Event)
lun. 21 janvier à 00:30
Can tolerance be just another form of hate? In an increasingly divided society, does simply “tolerating” others sometimes inadvertently separate us all into “us” and “them” categories in our minds (and hearts!) and only further reinforce those divisions? How can spirituality and the dual concepts of the “Oneness of Mankind” and “Unity in Diversity” help us to see past our differences to regard all whether family, friend or stranger as one of “us” and part of our own shared story? Please join us for a lively discussion on the spiritual perspective offered by the Bahá'i teachings on the role of love in moving beyond tolerance. How can we see our differences not as something to be merely tolerated but rather as a source of strength for our communities, and how can a spiritual foundation enable us yes to work together for the betterment of ourselves, our families, our communities and our world? “Do not be content with showing friendship in words alone, let your heart burn with loving kindness for all who may cross your path.” -- Baha’i teachings *** The event is free and open to all regardless of background or belief. No donations will be accepted.
