Unity Walk is Opening Doors to Interfaith Understanding
On Sunday, October 8, hundreds of people from all faiths will walk together on New Hampshire Avenue that is known as “the Highway to Heaven” because the three-mile route has more diverse faith traditions than anywhere else in America. The Unity Walk is free as is the Resource Fair with 15 exhibits beginning at 1 pm at the Chinmaya Mission 46 Norwood Road in Silver Spring.
The Unity Walk will feature seven houses of worship opening their doors in welcome and offering understanding of how faith traditions have been worshipping for thousands of years. People will also learn about community service programs including the beautiful Community Clinic at the Muslim Community Center serving thousands and enjoy musical performances.
The Resource Fair will include free Henna painting and arts (block-painting and coloring), registry to vote opportunity, information on our Basic Human Rights, programs welcoming refugees and immigrants and a Sukkah will be built for people to join in celebrating the Jewish Sukkot Holiday (October 4-11).
