HUMAN RIGHTS AND SPIRITUAL DEVELOPMENT: Rev Fr John Brian Paprock. The text of the key note address on the occasion of the 60th Anniversary of UN Declaration of Human Rights ~ 10th Anniversary of Interfaith Awareness Week in Wisconsin ~ 7th Annual Interfaith Celebration at the Capitol ~ is posted at Spiritual Reflections of Fr John Brian http://frjohbrian.blogspot.com/2008/12/human-rights-and-spiritual-development.html

Closing ceremony was led by Anne Wynne and Women with Wings. Anne acknowledged the election of Barack Hussein Obama as president as a dream realized. Celebration participants and some of the audience joined hands and joined the singing of "We Shall Overcome."

It is not a pregogative, but an imperative for members of the faith community to build bridges of understanding and compassion across rigidly constructed borders of religion. It is the responsibility of clergy and faithful alike to not only tolerate religious difference, but learn to embrace it.

Kudos to Madisonians for taking the lead in this most important task of humanity!
