Invitation to an Interfaith Walk in Helsinki

Invitation to an Interfaith Walk in Helsinki

We would like to invite everyone to join us in a walk around Töölö bay to contemplate sustainability, community, and faith. The Helsinki Quaker Meeting and the Helsinki Anglican Diocese join together on the 13th of October in an interfaith walk following the theme sustainability: planting the seeds of renewal for the world we love.

We will meet next to My Helsinki sign at Kansalaistori at 13.00 to begin the walk with a few words on the Quaker practice of silence, a short statement from the Anglican community and introduction to the theme of the event. We will then walk halfway around the lake in silent contemplation. At the halfway point we will take a short break to conclude the silence and then complete the walk with social conversation before heading to a nearby cafe for coffee.

Because of the event, the meeting for worship on October 13 in Helsinki will be a little bit shorter than usual. After the worship in Pasila, we will gather together for a potluck before heading to Töölö for the walk. Prepare with some food to share, warm clothes and welcome in for a fun event!
