of IRCC @ Heartlands (Nee Soon GRC)

IRCC doesn't stand for Internet Relay Chat Chat (as if). It's an acronym for an "inter-racial and religious confidence circle". Wikipedia has the following to say on the primary purpose of IRCC which is to provide a regular platform for leaders of various racial and religious communities to interact and get to know one another better, in order to build confidence, friendship and trust among them. Check out the official website of IRCC here to find out more.

So I came by chance this event this afternoon. Seriously, it's interesting (I like how educational the event was as it showcased information about the religions), however I reckon the event can do more in terms of publication. Just see a random shot below, there were quite a number of empty seats.

Unity in diversity is an ideal alright that we ought to strive to achieve and the same can be said for the various beliefs and religions.

And whether it does make sense to you, it rings very much the truth to me about what Khalil Gibran, a Lebanese-American artist, poet, and writer of the New York Pen League, once said:
I love you when you bow in your mosque, kneel in your temple, pray in your church. For you and I are sons of one religion, and it is the spirit.
