Love and the World​'​s Religions (Sun. 11 Mar, 2018 10:30 am - 11:30 am)

Sermon by Brian Carwana.

I look forward to being back at First this Sunday, as we welcome to our pulpit Brian Carwana, the Executive Director of Encounter World Religions. I first met Brian three years ago, when I took part in the week-long program he guides to help people discover the richness of Toronto's religious diversity. Over the course of the week, Brian presented a compelling series of introductory lectures about eleven of the world's great religions. Amid these lectures, my group visited nineteen houses of worship—from mosques and gurdwaras and synagogues to Hindu and Buddhist temples. Though I majored in comparative religion for my undergraduate degree, the week with Brian provided me with the most integrated education I've received about the religious traditions of the world. To learn more about the program, I encourage you to see this brief and beautiful video.

See you on Sunday!

In faith and love,

View the Order of Service.

The chalice will be lit, ambient music will be played, opening words will be offered, and there will be a lengthy and deep shared silence during which you may simply be. The service will end after almost an hour with closing words and the extinguishing of the chalice.
