THE INTERFAITH MINISTRY
Interfaith is not a religion; it is a channel that connects
the beliefs and traditions of one religion with that of another.
Interfaith is the "good will" ambassador whose mandate
is to respect and affirm the worth and beauty of each faith
without negating any other. As such the Interfaith Ministry
is a vehicle for clearing paths, building bridges and creating
peace among peoples of all races, cultures and religions.
Interfaith emphasizes universal principles and spiritual truths.
It celebrates mankind and the commonality and differences between
all men. It personifies religious tolerance and acceptance.
And it affirms that there are many paths leading people, of
all races, colors, creeds, and cultures back to one Divine
Interfaith finds a common ground between all peoples and explores
ways to dispel the myths and fears that cause unfounded hatred
between diverse groups. Interfaith finds beauty in diversity.
An Interfaith Ministry can take several forms. This Interfaith
Ministry, created by Reverend Barbara Etcovitch is predicated
on the conviction that a peaceful existence is based on an individual's
respect, love, and understanding of him/herself and on the respect,
love, and understanding of all others. Those who live peacefully
and with joy empower themselves and others and draw energy from
the Divine Source instead of robbing it from others.
It is her belief that a peaceful soul is obtained by bringing
into balance the opposing forces within; by exploring and refining
ones human possibilities; by experiencing oneself in relation
to others; and by finding ones own means of communicating with
a Divine Source.
Hence, the Ministry at As Above~So Below 1.teaches that there
is unity in diversity and that unity does not mean uniformity;
2. provides counselling for those who have deviated from a spiritual
path; 3.encourages a form of medicine which affirms the sanctity
of the human body, recognizing that it is the "temple of
the soul;" and 4.provides a welcoming and safe venue for
people of all cultures, races and faiths to celebrate their
uniqueness and sameness in creative, interfaith ceremonies including
weddings, naming ceremonies, funerals, vow renewals, pet burials,
and rites of passage for all stages of life.
