People who spread peace
People who get events like the Parliament of Religions together so that many can meet and share
My favorite spiritual places:
Sai Baba's Ashram
Interreligious causes I care about:
Understanding of each other's faiths, faiths working together
Changes I am working toward in my community:
Getting people together, breaking down barriers, and working together for the good of all

Joined an interfaith group and have been secretary for many years, also started an annual event locally to bring all cultures and faiths together.

I welcome you as a PeaceNext friend and I am glad to be your first one here. That is the idea ... most of us here may not know each other personally, but may over a period of time. Currently, for example I have not been as active on this net as I was when I first joined in December 2009 soon after the Melbourne Parliament, but I intend be quite active again some time soon. As you explore the different opportunities and possibilities of involvement here you may request friends of members who might be working in area of similar interests ... and in this regard I look forward to know and learn from and about you and your work. I hope you will have an enjoyable experience here.
Are you on Facebook too? I am and we could be friends over there as well. Feel free to write to me anytime and specially if you have any questions.
