A Buddhist monk gives a meditation at a previous “Interdependence Walk.”

With the goal of strengthening interfaith cooperation in Southern California, the fourth annual Interdependence Day walking meditation around Echo Park Lake is planned for 4 p.m. on Sunday, July 1, with seven stations of brief prayers and meditations offered in the tradition of major world religions.

All are welcome to participate and invited to assemble on the plaza of the Cathedral Center, 840 Echo Park Ave., Los Angeles. Coordinated by the Interfaith Cooperative of the Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles, this year’s walk will follow the theme of “L.A. as Metaphor,” affirming hopefulness and positive solutions to current pressing world concerns.

Organizers for the event are the diocese’s three interfaith ministers-in-residence, Sable Manson of USC, Tasneem Noor of the Islamic Center of Southern California, and Tahil Sharma of the Hindu and Sikh traditions. Following the walk, light refreshments will be served inside the Cathedral Center with optional time allotted for group reflection.

Further information may be requested by email at interfaith@ladiocese.org, or by phoning 213.482.2040, ext. 230.
