Community Leaders Unite to Spark Flame of Inspiration Toward Shared Destiny of National Sewa Day and Mitzvah Day at the Temple
Shree Swaminarayan Temple Golders Green played host to over a 100 registered organisation delegates from around the UK in an unprecedented gathering to share a vision of a more caring and sharing Britain on 3rd October.
Recognising the significant influence that Faith has on inspiring action in communities, the Shree Swaminarayan Temple London is playing a major role in a revolutionary idea of shared interfaith visions leaving the differences and focusing on the common ground.
The event was a grand networking convention where over 100 community leaders united through the sharing of information and ideas.
It began with an inspirational lighting of a flame of peace and there was an impressive pictorial exhibition of National Sewa Day projects and ideas.
Members of the Mitzvah day co-ordination team from Aylth Synagogue also attended to share their experiences with others attending from the length and breadth of the country.
Number of attendees remarked "There was a real buzz about the place as these delegates mingled....a real sense of purpose of shared values......inspiring each other to achieve their missions"
Arup Ganguly, Chairman of The National Sewa Day Committee said, "Clearly, one day isn't going to make a significant difference but it is hoped that National Sewa Day will lead to habit formation - that folks who take part this year will make volunteering a part of their regular routine. It is also hoped that the thousands of people taking part in this year's event will send out a very powerful message to the other 60 million people in the UK and encourage them to step forward next year."
Rabbi Goldsmith from Golders Green Alyth North Western Reform Synagogue said at a recent event at the temple said "I sincerely hope that our sharing and working together with the Temple on 21st November will help to lead us more and more into the habit of being the kind of people that we should be for a better world ...locally..nationally and internationally."
