Interreligious Christmas Gathering in Yekaterinburg

Yekaterinburg, Russia - Since September 2010, monthly meetings of representatives of different spiritual groups and religions have become traditional. Followers of different teachings make brief reports on the theme from the point of view of their teaching. In December the theme was the restoration of humanity and deliverance of the world from sin and violence. Afterwards, the participants prayed together. Music, poetry and songs added beauty to the event and created an elevated atmosphere.

The meeting was initiated by the Universal Peace Federation, Ural chapter. This time, the location was provided by a member of the New Life Protestant Church and founder of the international club “Fraternity”, Alexei Patrakov. Among the participants were Shri Chin Moi from Noosphere, the Spiritual and Ecological Assembly of Peace (Yekaterinburg branch), followers of the Vissarion teaching, Unification Church, and members of the Roerich Association “Towards Peace through Culture.” Altogether, there were 15 participants.

Throughout the month, the Universal Peace Federation has been preparing for the traditional Christmas Ten Days of Charity.
