Bali Berumbun - a group of Bali residents deeply concerned by the recent escalation in worldwide hostilities, is holding a weekend of shared prayer and celebration of the diversity of the many ethnic groups, religions and nationalities that comprise Bali's modern community. The event - Common Ground: Prayer and Celebration of Diversity is, according to its organizers, founded on the belief that the "power of prayer will arouse an essential understanding that sincere greetings of peace are universal."
Starting on Saturday, November 10, at 3 p.m. at the Regional Parliament Building (DPR-D) in Denpasar, representatives of the Hindu, Islamic, Buddhist, Christian, and Confucian faiths will be on hand and join hands for an afternoon and evening of entertainment including traditional Balinese dance, dances from Padang (West Sumatra) and Aceh, theatre presentations, clowns and musical performance. The next day, Sunday, November 11, an evening of acoustic music - dubbed "Indonesia Unplugged" is planned starting at 7:00 p.m..
The organizers believe that Bali's diversified population has demonstrated to the world that their home is an "island of peace" where our differences form a common community that is committed to peace, safety and fellowship.
Participation on both days is free of charge. Sponsorship opportunities are still available. For more information telephone Cok Sawitri at ++62 81 239 45 064 or Christine at ++62 81 138 81 85.
