Today, the Council for a Parliament of World Religions announced that the 2014 event planned in Brussels is cancelled due to the European monetary crisis and its impact on the Parliament’s finances. There were discussions of a possible “interspirituality” panel during this event.
We had a very interesting Congress of World Religions here in DC this week. I will try to keep our visibility up and see if we can be a player for future events at this level.
Thanks so much for this note. Yes, not only the monetary situation but internal and slightly uneasy turnovers in PWR staff and leadership; quite a time of re-alignment I think.
I will be in touch with the “Team” I was becoming part of to do some programs in Yerp (Europe) in 2014. Perhaps this is a call to innovate new structures, new initiatives, just as our own discussions are becoming formative. I have a feeling the group I was working with in Yerp will want to do some things anyway… perhaps an opportunity for our message too! Thanks again, Tim for all you do, esp. hosting people at various places for overnights when the Contemplative Alliance met in Washington DC last month.
