The Rime Buddhist center will host the 32nd Annual World Peace Meditation, an interfaith gathering  on December 31, at 7:00 a.m. (*please arrive by 6:30 a.m.). The program will consist of religious observances from various cultures and faith traditions including Native American smudging, Tibetan Buddhist chanting and meditation, Christian prayer, devotional music, and the Muslim “call to prayer.”

Members of the Greater Kansas City Interfaith Council will offer a prayer for peace from each of their faith traditions. Keynote speaker will be Mark A. Dupree, Sr., District Attorney of Wyandotte County, KS. A highlight of the event will be the presentation of the Bodhisattva Award. Our award this year will be given to Sofia Khan for her work with KC for Refugees.
