#FridayFeeling @NewportAquarium: Many Fish, One Ocean

Via Swedenborg.org:

1893

Religious Plurality

Swedenborg saw and conversed with persons of many faiths and so urged acceptance of other religions long before ecumenism came into vogue. Chicago lawyer Charles Bonney, a Swedenborgian Church member, initiates and manages the 1893 Parliament of the World’s Religions, held in conjunction with the Columbian Exposition. Bonney’s vision brings representatives from all the world’s great religions to the Parliament, an event that later historians term the dawn of religious plurality in America.
