180 Attend Event 5 Feb.

The VMS board sends heartfelt thanks to all who contributed to this wonderful event, in honour of UN World Interfaith Harmony Week! Healing the World: Appreciating Diversity, Creating Community was a huge success, with 180 attending (in the rain, on Superbowl Sunday…) The panel and presenters were inspired, insightful and articulate, and the response of the audience was lively and enthusiastic.

Kudos to our MC, coordinators, to Gettin’ Higher Choir, all who manned the colourful and well stocked displays and refreshment tables, and to those who acted as ushers and security.

The spirit of the event was amazing! From the message from the Muslim community presented by Ali Hemani, to the beautiful story by Shoshana Litman, wisdom of the panelists, the poignant questions of the audience, the songs of oneness and unity by Siobhan Robinsong and the choir and the closing song of Shana Lynngood, the event had an enchantment all its own.

Special thanks to MC Elaine McCreary and also to Jim Flood for the video below and Linda Coyne for the photos.
