Reflecting on Canada 150, Shimon Koffler Fogel – CEO of the Centre for Israel and Jewish Affairs (CIJA) – recently wrote in the Globe and Mail:

Under the banner of Cardus’ Faith in Canada 150 project, 75 Millennials gathered in Ottawa to talk about their faith in a highly diverse interfaith environment.

Hannah Marazzi, a lead organizer of the Millennial Summit, described the event as “an opportunity to bring together young people of diverse faith traditions from across Canada for a time of dialogue, celebration, and vision casting on the eve of Canada’s sesquicentennial anniversary.” 

Solomon penned a couple proverbial sayings as signposts to guide people on their quest for immortality, For everything there is a season, a time for every activity under heaven. A time to be born and a time to die …God has made everything beautiful for its own time. He has planted eternity in the human heart, but even so people cannot see the whole scope of God’s work from beginning to end …  A good reputation is more valuable than costly perfume.  And the day you die is better than the day you are born. (Eccl. 3:1,2,11; 7:1-2)
