THE Ahmadiyya Muslim community returns to Terrace Sept. 23 for another in a series of interfaith sessions.

This one explores how to deal with economic and moral crises existing in the current state of the world.

There are five speakers, each representing a faith community.

Two are local, Pastor Blake Holenstein, who has been primarily responsible for the youth and young adults ministry at the Terrace Pentecostal Assembly since July 2011. He’ll be representing the Christian faith.

The other local person is restauranteur Davinder Singh Sangha, who will be representing the Sikh faith.

Three other speakers from elsewhere will represent the Islamic perspective, the aboriginal perspective and the Buddhist perspective.

The Muslim speaker is Muhammad Afza Mirza, a member of the Ahmadiyya Muslim community and who is currently serving as the missionary-in-charge for Mississauga, Ontario. Serving as the moderator for the evening is George Clark.

The Sept. 23 session begins with light refreshments at 2:30 p.m. followed by a 3 p.m. start at the aboriginal longhouse meeting hall at Northwest Community College. It lasts until 6:30 p.m. and there is a refreshment break in between.

This is the seventh symposium to be sponsored here by the Ahmadiyya Muslim community and is one of many taking place across B.C. this year.

Founded in 1890, the Ahmadiyya Muslim community emphasizes the spread of Islam through peaceful means and has headquarters in Great Britain.

But the Ahmadiyya community is not well regarded by other Islamic followers and that’s brought on persecution of Ahmadis in several Islamic countries.

The Ahmadiyya community travels next to Dease Lake for a session called “Focus on Islam.”

That session takes place Sept. 24 from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. in the Dease Lake Community Centre.
