Interreligious Activities and Initiatives
Walk inter-religiously, walk the path of dialogue
A first group of people, a team of 35 women and men, dealing with educational matters, among which many teachers, participated in the program that the Interorthodox Centre of the Church of Greece ran. The program took place for the first time and was successfully embraced by the participants due to the unique nature of this seminar concerning issues of peaceful coexistence and social cohesion. On the 19th of October all the participants gathered together at the seminar room of the Interorthodox Centre at the Holy Monastery of Pendeli and were shown presentations by Sergios Voilas and Christos Nasios. On the 20th of October we visited certain places as part of our program. We visited the Synagogue in Athens; we attended a scheduled tour at the Museum of Islamic Art and we continued by visiting the Armenian Orthodox Cathedral.
The participants had the opportunity to come up with various lecture plans. We produced them by using the Interreligious Dialogue Resource Guide. The translation I made and the editing which is suitable for the Greek participants proved to be very fruitful.
