MultiFaith & Winter: Bringing the Light

Cultures around the world have long held feasts and celebrated holidays around the winter solstice. Fire and light are traditional symbols of celebrations held on the darkest days of the year.


As the end of 2020 approaches, we need light more than ever. Join us to learn from a panel of multifaith leaders, who will share the significance of light in their traditional winter celebrations.

We will explore other questions such as:

  • What activities can we all engage in to foster light in our communities?
  • How can we shine brighter for all during the pandemic, but especially for those who have been suffering (physically, financially, emotionally & spiritually) in this environment?
  • How do we remind our communities that the flip side of the longest, darkest night, is bright light and hope?

Streamed live, the program will feature:
