  Sandy Hook

Baltimore's Interfaith Community of Roland Park offers a forum featuring Mark Barden, whose son David was slain by gun violence at Sandy Hook Elementary School and who is a member of Sandy Hook Promise, on Sun., Aug. 18, 2013, 7-9 p.m., at Bolton Street Synagogue, 212 W. Cold Spring Lane in Baltimore.

The mission of the Interfaith Community of Roland Park is to create a sense of fellowship and community among area faith organizations through dialogue and cooperation among faith communities; to promote mutual support and respect consistent with our common quest for the Divine Presence and love for our neighbors; and to provide an interfaith voice for moral and spiritual leadership within the community.



Nine worship congregations along Roland Avenue in Baltimore constitute the Interfaith Community of Roland Park, a coalition of believers in God united under the slogan "Serving Others Together." The congregations of Roland Park seek to reflect the interfaith community within Roland Park where we can come together, build understanding and appreciation of our (and other) unique expressions of faith, and reach out to serve others.

Thich Nhat Hanh (Vietnamese Buddhist monk): "When we come into contact with the other person, our thoughts and actions should express our mind of compassion, even if that person says and does things that are not easy to accept. We practice in this way until we see clearly that our love is not contingent upon the other person being lovable."
