Message of the 1st National Assembly of Harmony Chain Initiative (HCI)
Signed by the participants of the 1st National Assembly of the Harmony Chain Initiative November 9, 2014.
We, the link persons, and the members of the HCI gathered in Harmony Village on the occasion of the 1st National Assembly of Silsilah Dialogue Movement reaffirm our committment to the HCI convinced that promoting prayer for peace is a sign of hope to sustain our committment for dialogue and peace.
We reaffirm our commitment to reach out to all the members and link persons of HCI around the world. We are aware that it is difficult for us to follow the thousands of members of this initiative spread out in the Philippines and many other countries. The 1st National Assembly reaffirmed the importance to have a better coordination with the link persons who, voluntarily, share their time to be key persons of this initiative in schools, parishes, mosques, groups, etc. Among the many ways to remain in contact we have opened the website www.harmonylink.info and the facebook firstname.lastname@example.org.
We have shared together some beautiful stories of this initiative and we have also reaffirmed our commitment to reach out to those who are interested to be part of this chain/link of dialogue and peace.
The HCI is also an occasion to promote the Harmony Prayer and the Harmony Song as a universal prayer/song that each one can use, in addition to its own form of prayer for peace, according to one’s own religion.
This special prayer and song is already adopted by many schools and groups and it is an inspiring message to reaffirm our commitment of peace through a process of purification, following God’s style of love, deepening our dialogue with God, the self, others, and creation.
We ask in our prayer: “The courage to be in Dialogue in the midst of divisions and conflicts and to build peace with all people of sincere hearts who believe in God’s love and compasion”.
The Harmony Prayer Initiative is:
•AN INTER-FAITH INITIATIVE OF MEDITATION AND PRAYER FOR
