The Victoria Multifaith Society and the Muslim Ahmadiyya community are hosting a special conference, The Timeless Question of Suffering, Sunday, Feb. 5, for this year's World Interfaith Harmony Week, followed by an East Indian dinner.

The event will be the Saanich Commonwealth Centre, Garry Oak Room, from 4:00 pm to 6:30 pm, moderated by Saanich Councillor Karen Harper.

This is an opportunity to get together to enjoy one another's company as well as a rich banquet of thoughts in a condensed period of time. Speakers will offer their perspectives on the topic of suffering, with all its implications on how we understand existence, live our lives and organize society. It's a profound question, essential to our well-being and answered many times throughout the ages.

Are there common threads? Do the responses contradict or complement one another? Perspectives represented are from the Baha'i, Buddhist, Christian, Hindu, Jewish, Latter Day Saints, Muslim, New Thought and Sikh traditions.

All are welcome. There's no charge. For further information and to register, see World Religions Conference Victoria.
