A Christian university in Abbotsford has hosted a world religion conference weeks after KKK literature was found at dozens of homes in the city.
City Councilor Kelly Chahal, who moderated Wednesday evening’s conference at Columbia Bible College, says this gives people in the city a chance to get a better understanding of others with different backgrounds.
“Our community has been just amazing how they’ve come together from various backgrounds and continue to work towards positive things instead of focusing on the very few and rare negative things.”
The conference brought together scholars from the Christian, Muslim, Hindu, Jewish and Sikh faiths.
On January 15, police reported there were plastic bags filled with hate literature left at 70 homes in East Abbotsford.
