About This Webinar

The Multiregion of the United Religions Initiative is offering the first webinar in the Sankofa Webinar Series: "Wisdom of Our Elders: Looking Back to Go Forward."

Join us for a conversation with our three interfaith elders about lessons learned. URI is a global grassroots interfaith network that cultivates peace and justice by engaging people to bridge religious and cultural differences and work together for the good of their communities and the world. Imagine the wisdom our elders possess, and the life experiences they will share to offer participants an opportunity to be inspired and recommit themselves to their passions for interfaith networking, bridging differences and making a difference in the world!

Sankofa is an African word from the Akan tribe in Ghana.  The literal translation of the word and the symbol is “it is not taboo to fetch what is at risk of being left behind.” The symbol for Sankofa is based on a mythical bird with its feet firmly planted forward with its head turned backwards. There must be movement and new learning as time passes. As this forward march proceeds, the knowledge of the past must never be forgotten.

Our presenting elders will be: Bishop William E. Swing, Founder and President of URI and author of A Bishop’s Quest; Joy Jinks, leader of the SAASE Cooperation Circle, the NOWTIME Radio CC, and author of Dynamic Aging: I Intend to Live Forever. So Far…So Good!; and PK McCary of Think Peace International, Inc. CC and author of the Black Bible Chronicles.
