As all of us seek to add beauty in this world, we are rocked by the terrorism that occurred in Christchurch, New Zealand. This sort of extremism knows no bounds - religion, nationality, or ethnicity.

Since this extremism is a threat to all of humanity, we need to stand together in condemnation of the attacks such as the one in Christchurch, as we did after the tragedy at the Tree of Life Synagogue, and the murders at Emanuel AME Church.

We hear stories of goodness from congregations that embody the mosaic of life responding to this tragedy, stories of faith traditions reaching out to other faith traditions, Jewish, Christian and Muslim. This expression of support is a blessing to all of humanity, creation, traditions, and ways of life.

The hope for humanity can be found in the teachings of each of our faith traditions, Judaism, Christianity and Islam. Our Muslim brothers and sisters in Christchurch have already gathered to have a service of forgiveness. We would like to invite our community to a service of “Standing Together” at the Embassy Suites (7290 Commerce Center Dr) on Thursday, March 21 at 6 PM. This Thursday also marks the Jewish holiday of Purim, a day of feasting and rejoicing when ancient extremism was prevented.

We envision a world where nobody has to wonder if it is safe to celebrate her/his identity, a world where extremism is in the past. We, the undersigned, on the basis of the teachings of our own religious traditions, condemn all forms of extremism that are a threat to all humanity.
