Dr. Michael Trice, Assistant Dean of the School of Theology and Ministry at Seattle University kicked off the event with opening remarks. Maulana Azhar Hanif Sb represented Islam and gave a wonderful discourse on what it meant to live like one human race. Azhar Hanif’s talk was very well received and many guests wanted him to speak longer than he could due to time constraints. All other speakers did a wonderful job in showing the rich humanistic teachings of their religions.

It was an event which left everyone informed and inspired.
