The churches in the former GDR played an important role in the peaceful revolution 30 years ago. Together with the Berlin based congregation Versöhnungsgemeinde and the Berlin Forum of Religions, the Jews, Christians and Muslims of the House of One and numerous representatives of other religions commemorate these dramatic months in 1989 two days before the fall of the Berlin Wall on November 9.
This year, the 5th International Choral Music Days ChorInt. took the laying of the foundation stone of the House of One as their theme. The result is "Music in Intercultural Dialogue", which is performed in Jewish, Christian and Muslim places. The organizer is the St.Petri-St.Mariengemeinde in Berlin.
We - Jews, Christians and Muslims of the House of One - would like to commemorate in a prayer for peace in 'Berlin's St. Mary's Church the two people murdered in Halle, their families and all those affected by the inhuman assassination of the synagogue.
"Religions and Peace - How can that succeed?" Our Imam Osman Örs will give a lecture on these questions as part of the series of talks on interreligious dialogue in Berlin's district Treptow-Köpenick, followed by a discussion.
