SPREADING THE MESSAGE OF HARMONY TO PEOPLE OF ALL FAITHS
HARMONY EXISTS IN MANY FORMS
The dictionary meaning of the word harmony is, “the quality of forming a pleasing and consistent whole.” A symphony orchestra represents harmony in pluralistic society. Musical instruments of all shapes and sizes come together to form a harmonious melody through persistent effort and continuous practice. In modern society, harmony can be anything from lessening hostilities and increasing tolerance to cooperation and fellowship, but the seeds of harmony will only flourish with proper nurturing.
ALL FAITHS MEANS EVERYBODY
We are a community organization that believes in practical strategies. Our mission is to spread the message of harmony to people of all faiths. Because we define faith as, “complete trust, confidence or strong belief in someone or something,” our definition includes all belief systems. As the musical analogy suggests, we respect individuality and do not advocate uniformity. We acknowledge that harmony is the coming together of many different notes in order to create a pleasant melody. Our main focus is on harmonizing relations between people of different faiths and ideologies.
WHY IS THIS IMPORTANT?
Division and discord exists on a massive scale in our world, especially on the Internet where those forces flourish like never before. If we want to prevent acrimony from spilling into our streets more than it already has, we need more than wishful thinking. Harmony Interfaith Initiative was created to actively pursue harmony through understanding, dialogue and personal strategies.
OUR DONATION-BASED PROGRAM
We offer a donation-based program titled, Working Together Towards Harmony: Rising Above Division to Embrace Our Shared Humanity. We accept any dollar amount and put few restrictions on the program to make it accessible to as many people as possible. It is ideal for churches, colleges, high schools, temples, synagogues, spiritual groups, workplaces, community efforts, diversity programs, and other places where people have ideological differences. Learn more and to invite us to speak to your group or organization.
