ICLB Admitted to the Cooperation Circles of URI, United Religions Initiative.

The ICLB has become a member of United Religions Initiative. URI is ” is a global grassroots interfaith network that cultivates peace and justice by engaging people to bridge religious and cultural differences and work together for the good of their communities and the world.”

Below is a letter from Bishop Swing, their President:

As Founder and President of URI, I want to welcome you and the other members from Interfaith Community of Lower Bucks.

URI started in 1993 as a vague dream. Over the next few years, URI began to gather people from around the world, and we all became a committed and caring community. Then, after three more years of hard work, we produced the URI Charter (Preamble, Purpose and Principles). And finally on June 26, 2000, we launched. The once vague idea became a well-defined approach of linking peacemakers to local and global issues and to each other. Peacemakers who honor the spiritual dimensions of life are at work today in 102 countries and growing fast.

And now there is you!

You will never know what a cause for rejoicing comes from having you join the URI family. I, along with hundreds of others, have read about you and the focus of your work. We welcome you and applaud what you do.

If you ever want to be in touch with me, I am just an email away. Feel free to connect. Meanwhile I send warmest greetings to you and to you all.


+William E. Swing
