Imagine a fine spring day at the park, along the Grand River. Children and
adults from many faiths and spiritual traditions -- Buddhist, Baha'i,
Christian, Hindu, Jewish, Muslim, Native American, and others -- have gathered
to hear each other's wisdom teachings about caring for Earth, to make music,
to dance, and to plant Black-eyed Susans together. 
You wake up, and it's a dream come true -- Sunday, May 31, from 2:30 - 4:30
p.m., at Ah-Nab-Awen Park on the Grand River (by the Ford Museum).
