Peace Songs manifested in 10 Icelandic Churches

Over the weekend a 10-day tour through 10 churches of Iceland finalized with a concert in the Fríkirkjan church in Reykjavik. After the successful touring of the “World Harmony Run” through the country the Sri Chinmoy Centre Iceland launched a second peace initiative. 10 singers from around the world performed devotional songs written by peace advocate Sri Chinmoy (1931-2007) who devoted all his live to the cause of peace and also visited Iceland many times offering peace concerts and met with members of the parliament. They first visited the church in the National Park of Thingvellir, which is around 50km from Reykjavik. Then followed concerts in the churches of Þingvallakirkja, Strandarkirkja, Hallgrímskirkja, Borgarkirkja, Hellnakirkja, Möðruvallakirkja, Húsavíkurkirkja, Skútustaðakirkja and Fríkirkjan in Reykjavík. The singer group plans further tours in the coming years. (Photo by Kedar Misani)
