This Sunday, 15th January is World Religion Day. Initiated by the Ba'hai faith, the aim of the day which is held on the third Sunday in January every year, is "to promote inter-faith understanding and harmony. Through a variety of events held around the globe, followers of every religion are encouraged to acknowledge the similarities that different faiths have." In the present troubled world, this seems especially apt this year. It is also a good introduction to Christian Unity Week, about which we have more tomorrow.
