Celebrate Love in Diversity – A prayer service in memory of Rev. Dr. Luther King Jr.

Where: All Faiths Chapel, 9240 Sun Lakes Blvd.

When: Monday, January 18 from 1:00-2:30 p.m.

Martin Luther King was a man of non-violence whose integrity and strength of spirit brought incredible change. His legacy of peaceful means to social change continues to be an example to us all. This gathering honors the diversity in world faiths and the universal power of peace that exists in every human heart. We unite together with a common vision of peaceful communities, sharing inspirational music and messages of hope and love to heal our world.

The Greater Sun Lakes Interfaith Council, in response to cross-cultural tension developing as a result of recent events, is hosting a gathering conversation with music and prayer for our community, America and the world. In the spirit of Dr. King’s dream of peace in our time this interfaith service features the voice of reason in the presence of love to foster renewed hope. Many voices join together as one in the celebration of love in diversity, with comments and prayers from religious leaders across faiths.

The Greater Sun Lakes Interfaith Council invitations to Celebrate Love in Diversity include the Arizona Interfaith Movement, Islamic Speakers Bureau, Arizona Christian Speakers Bureau, Hindu Speakers Bureau, Arizona Sikh community, the Arizona Intertribal Council and others.

It is our intention as an Interfaith Council, to facilitate opportunities to further peaceful solutions by holding peace supporting events for the community. This initial event honors Dr. King and those who continue to create conversations that support the season of non-violence. We will host a unique monthly event January through April.
