Many of us probably still recall the torching of the Sikh temple in Oswego County a few years ago. What can we do now in memory of the lives taken in the slaughter at the Wisconsin Sikh temple? One first step can be to remember that we all have different ways of worshipping our God.
One way to learn to better get along is through our local organization of religious leaders. In Jefferson County we have the Council of Churches.
But wait some of us gather to worship but it isnt in a church. Some of us who are peaceable gather here in congregations of Jews, Muslims and one or two Buddhist sanghas, and this paper recently told us of the celebration at the Thousand Island Park for Swami Vivekananda. Perhaps it is time to have a local Council of Congregations.
