Northeast Tennessee Chapter URI CC

Label: Cooperation Circle Info

27 Members

Traditions: Christian, Hindu, Jewish, Sikh  See All

Action Area: Interfaith and Intercultural Understanding and Dialogue

Region: North America

Label: Purpose & Activities

Our purpose is to promote awareness, respect, and cooperation among the diverse religions of Northeast Tennessee.

For the past six years, we have held an annual interfaith Thanksgiving dinner called the Gratitude Dinner. This year we had almost 90 people in attendance of the Hindu, Muslim, Wiccan, Christian, Jewish, Buddhist, and Native American faiths and traditions. We danced the Dance of Universal Peace with joy and wonderment of all that is. We have met three times with Hindu, Muslim, and Buddhist people for discussion, mutual learning and knowledge.

Our dream is to fulfill our purpose through our individual example and through our collective action in the region.

Statement on the Refugee Crisis and Our Common Humanity

If our beliefs are built on sound foundation, making common cause with others becomes an easy and gratifying task. One does not have to loose one's identity, but one is asked to embrace the others. By celebrating our differences, at the same time, we richen ourselves and others from the encounter; instead of its being a clash of civilizations and cultures, it becomes an amalgam of cultural experiences which makes us better persons.
