Capture Our Community

Oct 4, 2023

We need your help to bring our online presence to life!
 
As a cherished member of our community, you’ve been a part of memorable trainings, lively workshops, and inspiring events. These are moments that truly symbolize the essence of our organization – the people. But unfortunately, we recently noticed that we don’t have enough images chronicling these special moments.
 
To rectify this, we’re seeking your assistance. Here’s what we’re looking for:
  • Images from Trainings
  • Snapshots from Events
  • Pictures from Meetups
  • Photographs from Workshops
  • Images from Courses
  • Photos from your ministry
  • Anything else you can think of that captures our community
 
These images will not only serve as a visual record of our journey together but also create a vibrant and relatable representation of our community to others.
 
Let’s Showcase Our Vibrant Community! Taking part is easy. If you have photos capturing unique moments from the above occasions that you’re comfortable sharing, please upload them here. These could potentially be featured across our online platforms such as our Facebook page, Instagram, and official website. Please ensure you’re okay with these images being used publicly before sharing! The photos will only be used to demonstrate the real people behind the name ‘OneSpirit.’
 
Together, let’s show the world the powerful, thriving community that is OneSpirit!

International Day of Friendship

As the International Day of Friendship approaches, OneSpirit celebrates the power of connections that bridge the divides of race, religion, and nationality. In a world often shadowed by division, this day stands as a beacon of solidarity, understanding, and shared humanity. OneSpirit champions the essence of friendship as a sacred bond, pivotal to its mission of fostering interfaith dialogue and respect for diverse beliefs. This occasion is not only about honouring existing bonds but also about reaching out to create new ones, expanding our understanding and empathy through every new friendship formed. At OneSpirit, we nurture qualities vital for genuine connection—empathy, open-mindedness, and inclusivity—within our courses and community. This Day of Friendship, acknowledge the friends who light your way and open your hearts to forming new bonds, in a collective endeavour to build a world where friendship transcends all barriers, guided by a vision of understanding, respect, and unconditional love.

Governance Framework: Marriage Solemniser/Officiant Registers
