Chicago Friends Dedicate New Parliament of the World's Religions Office

The staff of the Parliament of the World's Religions recently announced its ascent one floor from its home at 70 East Lake Street in Chicago to an airier, larger, and more multi-functional office. Celebrating 25 and 125 years since the first and centenary Parliaments, the organization welcomed visitors to Suite 320 for an open house May 17 to gather in co-creating a future Parliament plan that even better serves the world, and more actively engages its hometown neighbors in ways that tap into the visionary Chicago spirit that conceived so much history for the global interfaith movement.

Approximately 50 nearest and dearest supporters of the Parliament came to say congratulations, share ideas, and contribute suggestions to curate a "museum" space, a meeting space, a media space, and meet the America-based team working to produce the forthcoming 7th Parliament of the World's Religions coming to Toronto in November this year.

Enjoying interfaith art games, appetizers and mingling, guests got to know each other and Chicago-resident Trustees of the Board before gathering to hear Executive Director Larry Greenfield and team welcoming a diverse community of supporters in advance of learning about the ways they can shape our new Chicago interfaith action plan (applying a reinvigorated promotion of its landmark document, Towards a Global Ethic), and contribute to a critical impact campaign launched to fund targeted, effective programming to serve Chicagoland and reach new advocates worldwide.

Bringing faith and promise into mind, Larry's dedication issued an invitation to neighbors to feel part of the growth and direction of the Parliament in a milestone anniversary year:

Please join me in a [time of] dedication of this new space for the work of the Parliament of the World’s Religions.

We call to our consciousness the presence of that sacred reality, infused in the world but made known to us in wondrously diverse ways and expressions. It is a reality that, by its presence, can make even the most ordinary and even banal space powerfully sacred.

Today we dedicate this space – this new space of the Parliament of the World’s Religions – to the will and work of that sacred reality, committing it to be a place where people and peoples of different faiths and spiritualities can recognize it as their own, and yet also find wisdom, truth, and knowledge of faiths and spiritualities other than their own; to be place where the cultivation of harmony among the faiths and spiritualities of the world can be nurtured; to be a place where people of faith and conscience can join together to enlarge and make powerful the spheres justice, and peace, and the earth’s flourishing.

In the presence of this sacred space, we recognize that we, individually and together, can represent the sacred reality to the world and be agents of that sacrality’s justice, peace, and flourishing.

May it be so now, and as we continue to discover our harmony into the future.

Future gatherings in Suite 320 will be announced soon, in addition to Chicago-centered observances of 25th anniversary of the 1993 Parliament of the World’s Religions, and the 125 year anniversary of the first World Parliament of Religions, which animated a global interfaith dialogue for the first time in Chicago in September, 1893.

Mesti kalian ketahui, fungsi hati di dalam tubuh kita adalah menghancurkan senyawa racun atau kotoran yang mengandung kimia di badan kita. Selain itu organ hati membantu pencernaan di tubuh manusia dengan menciptakan cairan empedu (bile) & ditampung di gallbladder (kantung empedu). Cairan empedu (bile) memuat kandungan bilirubin & biliverdin yang mana menyebabkan limbah ampas pencernaan bermotif kekuningan. http://bit.ly/2g7T9X3

Masalah kesehatan kanker hati termasuk dalam gangguan kesehatan yang berbahaya. Masalah kesehatan kanker hati banyak didapatkan pada pria dibandingkan wanita, umumnya kurang lebih berusia 50-70 tahun. Di negara Indonesia, persoalan penyakit kanker hati telah menjangkau hingga 33.000 perkara dan terus-terusan bertambah tiap-tiap tahunnya.

Salah satu pemicu yang sering muncul yaitu ketidaksempurnaan pada organ hati yang dalam dunia kedokteran disebut dengan nama cirrhosis of the liver (sirosis). Sirosis (cirrhosis of the liver) tersebut muncul karena organ hati telah dihinggapi oleh virus atau bakteri hepatitis B dan C, mengasup alkohol terlampau banyak, penumpukan kolesterol di organ hati, gangguan kesehatan autoimun yakni peristiwa apabila sistem imunitas fisik mengganggu badan sendiri.

Ada dua varian kanker hati yaitu:
- Kanker hati primer (Hepatocellular carcinoma). Ialah kanker hati yang muncul diakibatkan adanya masalah di dalam organ hati.
- Kanker hati sekunder (Metastasis). Merupakan sel-sel kanker hati yang telah meluas dari hati ke organ-organ lainnya.

Daun sirsak dan umbi keladi tikus di obat-obatan herbal K-Muricata begitu ampuh menyembuhkan masalah kesehatan kanker hati dikarenakan kandungan daun sirsak mengandung senyawa aktif (acetogenins) yang memiliki mutu 4x lebih kuat dari detoksifikasi (sitotoksik) sehingga dapat menyaring tubuh dari limbah atau kotoran racun serta meregenerasi sel yang telah punah. Dalam beberapa uji riset pun ditemukan bahwa acetogenins (senyawa aktif) yang terkandung pada produk kesehatan herbal K-Muricata bisa menghancurkan beberapa kategori kanker yang tak bisa dimatikan oleh obat kemoterapi semacam Vincristin, Adriamicyn dan Vinblastin.

Umbi keladi tikus berisi Ribosome Inactivating Proteins yang berguna menghambat timbulnya sel penyakit kanker hati yang mana kekuatannya sepuluh ribu kali lebih kuat dari obat kemoterapi kimia lainnya. Dan juga triterpenoid (senyawa metabolit sekunder) yang berproses untuk menghambat penyebaran sel kanker hati itu. Muatan antioksidan yang tinggi di dalam umbi keladi tikus juga bisa mencegah radikal bebas masuk kedalam tubuh.
