Statement of Peace Following Orlando Shootings

Interfaith Community of Lower Bucks County

Statement of Peace

The Interfaith Community of Lower Bucks County–a volunteer, nonprofit organization– stands in support of the greater Orlando community.

Although there are those opportunists who would misconstrue the recent shooting against the gay community as faith based violence, we stand together with our Muslim brothers and sisters who live in faith and service– decrying any and all acts of violence against humanity.

Rather than a time to be divided by fear and ignorance, we unite as a community and nation to support the richness of our diversity, the strength of our resilience, and increased resolve to promote a more harmonious world.

As the Interfaith Community of Lower Bucks, we celebrate the commonality of all religions, local and abroad, whose intersection is universal love, acceptance, and compassionate service. By endorsing and collaborating with like minded organizations, we work to make Bucks County a more beloved community.

Sharing Our Faith series includes: Jewish holidays, Ramadan meals, Day of Prayer for Native American Indian Youth, Yardley Peace Festival, Thanksgiving Interfaith Potluck, Holiday Prayers, and more. We host speakers, films, and gatherings—all in the spirit of peace.

As Christians, Muslims, Jews, Quakers, Native Americans, Sikhs, Eckankar, Buddhists, Humanists, and more — we speak many languages, have deep local roots, and are immigrants celebrating the collective freedom to worship.

We of many faiths—through special events and shared meals—unite in making Bucks County a safer and more vibrant place for all people to live, thrive, worship, and work. As partners in peace we gather, break bread, and share stories, in our journey toward peace.
