Solidaritea: Having an Interfaith Discussion over Tea
The Sukyo Mahikari Youth Group of the San Francisco center hosted an interfaith youth gathering event, called "Solidaritea," at the San Francisco Union Square center on December 18, 2011.
On the slightly chilly afternoon in San Francisco, Sukyo Mahikari Youth Group members met with two people from the Faiths Act and a member of a Jewish congregation over hot tea and refreshments to discuss the UN Millennium Goals. We also discussed the Faith Act's aim to eliminate and prevent malaria in the African country of Sierra Leone and the idea of health as a fundamental goal and human right. It was a wonderful opportunity to connect with other youth who have common goals and aspirations for a brighter, sustainable society. For more information, see www.FaithsAct.org and www.tonyblairfaithfoundation.org.
We continued the gathering with a small community service project by writing holiday greeting cards for patients and volunteers at Children's Hospital Oakland.
A staff member and the center's youth group coordinator were able to give an introduction to Sukyo Mahikari and the efforts of the Sukyo Mahikari Youth Group.
It was truly a wonderful opportunity to connect with youth from different faiths to share our thoughts and beliefs on common goals and divine principles, and our local and global efforts in improving society.
On January 28, 2012, the San Francisco youth group members collaborated with the Faiths Act in a community service project at Medshare, a non-profit organization dedicated to distributing recycled or reusable medical supplies to developing nations.
We hope to continue working with staff members and enthusiastic youth of faith to help others in promoting a sustainable and bright future.
