A New Year’s Message from the Executive Director

Written by Dr. Larry Greenfield
January 1, 2017

What can you expect of the Parliament of the World’s Religions in 2017?
Not a new New Year’s Resolution.
You can expect, instead, a renewed resoluteness.
The Parliament will be resolute in:
Cultivating harmony among the world’s religious and spiritual communities
Fostering engagement with the world’s guiding institutions
Working to achieve a just, peaceful, and sustainable world.
Be resolute with us in 2017!
Larry Greenfield
Executive Director
