Vigil Organized by the Kingston Interfaith Community
Monday, March 18/19 – 5:30 pm
Confederation Basin across from Kingston City Hall
Friends of Shalom fully support the statement by The Kingston Interfaith Community and welcome other faith members and leaders to embrace and share:
We, members and leaders of diverse religious faiths and spiritual practices, are heartbroken and horrified by the news from Christ Church, New Zealand that at least 49 people were shot dead and dozens more injured while participating in Friday prayers at two mosques. Keenly aware of and grateful for Muslim friends and neighbours here in Kingston, we join them in holding in our hearts and prayers the individuals and families directly affected by this shooting, Muslim communities in Christ Church, across New Zealand, in Canada and around the world.
Standing with peace-makers and justice seekers here and everywhere, we continue to strongly denounce Islamophobia, religious intolerance in any form, violence in all forms and white supremacy. We remain even more deeply committed to mutual respect, understanding and harmony among and beyond peoples of all faith traditions and spiritual practices in Kingston, across Canada and around the world.
Please join together for the vigil on Monday evening!
Faith and Courage: From Slavery to Freedom
The Story of the Reverend Josiah Henson
Saturday February 16, 2 p.m. & 7:30 p.m.
St. Andrew’s Church
This is the inspiring, true story of Josiah Henson who was born into slavery in Maryland in the late eighteenth century. Despite terrible conditions where he was beaten, starved and degraded, despite every attempt to break him, he remained unbroken. At eighteen he heard his first sermon and was blown away. That Jesus died for everyone, for the black man as well as the white, struck such a chord with Josiah that from then on, he devoted his life to God and became a preacher. His belief in God gave him the strength to survive slavery and to ultimately gain his freedom. Once free, he used his freedom well and became one of the most important figures in Canadian black history. A veteran of the Stratford and Shaw Festivals, Cassel Miles recreates the Reverend Josiah Henson’s days in slavery and his struggle for freedom. Tickets $20 at the door. Join us at St Andrew’s Presbyterian Church during this Black History Month.
