Aug. 12, 2010 - Spring's Haven Denounces Church Event To Burn The Qu’ran
 
In protest of what it calls a religion "of the devil," The Dove World Outreach Center (a nondenominational church) in Gainesville, Florida, plans to host an "International Burn a Qu’ran Day" on the ninth anniversary of the September 11, 2001, attacks. [More at CNN].
 
Spring's Haven joins the many religious and spiritual organizations who have already denounced this event. We encourage people to learn about other religions in an effort to understand their history, perspectives and points of view. In this way we can learn tolerance and develop understanding, respect and tolerance to promote a peaceful world.
 
This type of event is designed to show disrespect for our Muslim neighbors and will exacerbate tensions between Muslims throughout the world and every other religion that differs from their beliefs. This type of act doesn't just affect Christians, but people of all faiths. We here at Spring's Haven urge the cancellation of the burning.
 
Instead we encourage our members to cultivate relationships of trust and respect with our neighbors of other faiths. Share the joy in walking a spiritual path that brings meaning to your life and allow others o share theirs with you. You don't have to agree, you don't have to debate differences. Just listen, learn and walk the path of tolerance. In this way we can develop a culture of understanding and peace.
