The Parliament of the World’s Religions, a gathering of religious leaders from around the world, concluded its eighth convening Monday (Oct. 18). With a central theme of “Opening Our Hearts to the World: Compassion in Action,” the virtual event’s presenters spoke on interfaith understanding, religious prejudice, gender equality and healing in difficult times.
But amid musical performances and spiritual blessings, the recurring theme of the three-day interfaith event was climate change.
