The recently formed Central Delaware Interfaith Alliance has adopted a mission statement for its organization.
At a meeting on October 12, group members voted on the mission statement to help them with their vision and plan for future work.
The process of creating the mission statement required several pre-meetings, both in person and virtually. The contribution of many local religious leaders, churches, places of worship and the local synagogue and mosque has been included.
From now on, the group will focus on continuing to draft the statutes, which will be implemented in early 2022.
The new mission statement reads: “The Central Delaware Interfaith Alliance is dedicated to the principle of the unity and wholeness of the human family. This organization welcomes members of all religious and cultural communities, recognizing the importance of compassion and cooperation. We value fraternity, interreligious dialogue and reciprocity. While receiving inspiration and guidance from our own varied religious traditions, we seek to unite our dear communities by sharing service, providing educational opportunities and working for a just, just and equitable society.
The Central Delaware Interfaith Alliance merged with the group formerly known as the Kent Ecumenical Food and Crisis Fund. To donate, mail your contributions to PO Box 913, Dover, DE 19903.
