New York Yearly Meeting

of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers)

15 Rutherford Place

New York, NY

 

To the Leadership of the Parliament of the World's Religions - We commend to you Friend Robert (“Sunfire”) Kazmayer, who is a member of the Easton Meeting of the Religious Society of Friends (a meeting within New York Yearly Meeting) and a member of New York Yearly Meeting's Earthcare Working Group.

Sunfire has shared with New York Yearly Meeting his leading to attend the 2015 Parliament of the World's Religions, October 15-19, 2015, in Salt Lake City, Utah. This leading has grown out of his conviction, expressed to us, that all of the world's spiritual leaders have a vital role in combating the hatred that is tearing the world apart. He has noted the call of the Parliament's leadership to "all faith communities to move against violence and hate," and that this call is in harmony with Quaker testimony since the start of our movement in the seventeenth century.

We look forward to hearing a report from him about the 2015 Parliament and trust that what he brings to us will help us work with other faith communities to achieve the world of peace that we seek.
