Interfaith Harmony Week being marked in Truro

January 29, 2020   |   Category: Prophecy News   |   Tags: ,

Bringing people together to form friendships and foster understanding is the goal of a newly-formed group.

The Cobequid Interfaith Council, comprised of people from several different faiths and beliefs, is holding special events for Interfaith Harmony Week, Feb. 2-9.

“There will be an interfaith expo on Feb. 2 and, whether you’re part of a faith or not, this is for you,” said Rev. Valerie Kingsbury, minister at First United Church and a member of the council. “We want to build community with an understanding of different faiths. There will be people from different faith traditions at the expo and there will be a chance to ask questions.”

During the week, there will be opportunities for people to join with different groups as they celebrate their beliefs.

“There are many different ways, and spiritual paths, people travel but we still have a lot in common,” said Kingsbury. “In society in general, there is a deep yearning for spirituality, whatever form it takes.”

    My wife of 30 years has passed away. We studied the bible together, even though we were of different faiths. We often found differences between our bible’s,and Leaders teachings!
    For 30 years I pleaded with her to get baptized, but she was thought that it would be a greater sin to be baptized, and then sin. Then it would be to never have been baptized! I cry over this daily.
    Would you help me with scripture so I might be able to find comfort in the Lord. Thank you. Mark

      Hello Mark,

      I’m so sorry to hear of your loss, I can’t imagine what you are going through. I believe you can find comfort in Revelation 20:11 And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.
      This scripture is talking about the end of the 1000 year Millennial reign.
      In my opinion, the scripture is saying that people will be judged on their works, doing the best they could with the truth that they could understand. And the Lord who is gracious and loving and kind and just, will judge accordingly.

      I hope this is helpful. Lord bless you and I pray He gives you peace and comfort.
