Sharing Wisdom


October, 2009

Imam Dr. Abduljalil Sajid explains how believing in the idea of forgiveness is a step toward bringing peace and harmony into our everyday life.

The Fourth Bi-Annual Meeting of the Elijah Board of World Religious Leaders met in Haifa and Galillee, from Oct. 18-22, 2009. The meeting was devoted to the theme “The Future of Religious Leadership”. It explored what it means to be a religious leader, in all participating religions, what challenges religious leaders face today and how religious leaders should be trained. In this context, the Fetzer Institute and the Elijah Interfaith Institute filmed religious leaders further exploring the concepts of forgiveness, compassion, love, humility and mindfulness.
