A house of three religions built for manyHouse of One stellt sich in Karl Rahner Akademie Köln vor
Roland Stolte, Chairman of the Administrative Board and responsible for the idea and conception of the House of One, presents the project at the Karl Rahner Academy Cologne.
With the "House of One", Jews, Christians and Muslims in Berlin have set out to plan, build and fill with life a completely new, future-oriented sacred building. This extraordinary project started in 2010.
After the architectural competition in 2012, KuehnMalvezzi was commissioned with the planning. The foundation stone will be laid in spring 2020. After ten years of development, this local project has become an international movement, with a worldwide reception as a built symbol of peace for religions, with subsidiary projects in Africa and Europe.
Globalisation of Religions
How is it to be classified if - right in the heart of secular Berlin - the religions are made public in a prominent way with this project and with great social attention? And what do the cooperations with the partner projects worldwide mean for a "globalization of religions" in the good sense, which already 50 years ago Karl Rahner in the wake of the 11th Vatican Council saw a new world church coming into being?
A broad-based fundraising and participation campaign makes the realization possible. But the public sector is also interested in this interreligious idea. The Federal Government and the State of Berlin support the "House of One" financially.
Anlässlich der Eröffnung des 13. Europäischen Kongresses zu psychischer Gesundheit bei intellektueller Entwicklungsstörung (EAMHID) wird an die systematische Ermordung von Menschen mit körperlichen, geistigen und seelischen Einschränkungen und Erkrankungen erinnert, die in den Jahren 1940 und 1941 in Deutschland ermordet wurden. Menschen in all ihrer Unterschiedlichkeit stehen an diesem Tag im Zentrum. Jüdische und muslimische Gläubige des House of One sind an dem christlichen Gottesdienst in der Kaiser Wilhelm Gedächtniskirche in Berlin beteiligt.Kaiser-Wilhelm-Gedächtnis-Kirche
As part of the festive year #2021 Jewish Life in Germany, the installation "Adam, where are you?" by artist Ilana Lewitan has been created. In Berlin, the art show can be seen in the Parochialkirche. As a cooperation partner, the House of One itself will help shape the exhibition's educational outreach program.
Under the motto "Berlin says thank you", the ecumenical service in front of the Gedächtniskirche under the patronage of the Governing Mayor Michael Müller on Sunday celebrates the voluntary commitment in the time of the pandemic.
