September 4–6 this year, the 36th Congress of the IARF (International Association for Religious Freedom )will take place in Kolozsvár under the theme FAITH IN RECONCILIATION. “The theme seeks to explore the role of religion in fostering healing, reconciliation, and just peace around the globe. Discussions will cover topics such as the role of religious leaders in reconciliation, the place of religious narratives in modern societies, and the lessons interfaith dialogue can offer to the broader social and political realm.”
You can get more information via the website: IARF.net/congress-2023. New will be the possibility to follow the congress from home via internet. The booking fee for this is 50€. This hybrid event will be new for IARF. The big challenge is: Can we create a program that gives everybody around the world (at least once) the chance to log in at an acceptable time (not at 3 o’clock sleeping time).
There are pre- and post-congress activities. September 1–3, there will be a bus tour around the Transylvanian area. Places with old Unitarian traditions will be visited, so, of course, Torda. After the congress, the “International Association of Liberal Religious Women” (IALRW) will have a two -day congress. “From Reconciliation to Inclusive Diversity” will be the theme. Go to the website IALRW.org for more information.
