Label: Purpose & Activities

Our purpose is to organize and coordinate activities for interfaith dialogue and understanding.

The Steering Committee URI The Netherlands CC works to develop URI CCs across the country and to support existing CCs. Last year our CC wrote a plan of approach onthe following:

  1. how we can work together with interreligious partners
  2. how we can support national CCs
  3. how we can acquire finances
  4. how we can realize the foundation of new CCs

The members of the URI Steering Committee are working in more than one interreligious setting, in the Netherlands as well as abroad. For example translated a book entitled “Die Bibel interreligio¨s gelesen” by Dr. Reinhard Kirste (Iserlohn) from German into Dutch: “De tolerante Bijbel” (“The tolerant Bible”). In April 2010 we held a symposium on the theme: “I make difference!! Difference in education.” Furthermore, we met the artist Leo Lebendig at the big church of The Hague during the interreligious service before the opening of the parliamentary year in September of 2009. He supports the project “Friedenslicht der Religionen” [peace light of religions]. To learn more, visit http://www.unitedreligionsinitiative.nl

We dream of connecting different believers in compassion.
