Wednesday at Knox: Feb 7 Brice Balmer: Our Changing Region – Interfaith in Waterloo Region How has our region changed demographically and how do people from many faiths and cultures participate in society? Rev. Brice Balmer is assistant professer in spiritual care and psychotherapy at Wilfrid Laurier University, and teaches courses in multi-faith, community development, counseling and addictions. He will share stories from Interfaith Grand River which works with schools, the police, governments and many community groups to create a climate where all are recognized with dignity and can maintain their faith and practices while being Canadian and making contributions to the health of this region. Interfaith dialogue helps develop understanding and friendships so that new solutions and attitudes can be found.
