World Religion day, Spt-Bossier: Sun, Jan 25, 1 to 6 pm, Highland Center, 520 Olive St.

"Our celebration of World Religion Day is a full afternoon of speakers, panel discussions, table displays, music and dance. Come and learn about the religions of the world from members of 18 or more different faith communities," says Susan Caldwell of All Souls Unitarian.

World Religion Day is an international celebration founded by the Baha'is over 50 years ago and celebrated on the 3rd Sunday in January. The local celebration is always the Sunday after the Martin Luther King holiday weekend, so as to give both celebrations the respect and attention they deserve.

The keynote speaker this year is Lady Carlson of Northern and Central Louisiana Interfaith. Please see the event website at
