"In an effort to promote coexistence amongst all religions, the Belgian post office, Bpost, has announced a new stamp to feature three religious Belgian leaders: the country’s chief rabbi Albert Guigui, Imam Khalid Benhaddou from the Belgian port city of Ghent and the Bishop of Antwerp Johan Bonny.

"The stamp, to be unveiled sometime in 2016, will display a powerful message of unity and equality: 'Everybody equal, everybody different.'" Canadian-Jewish News (CJN) MORE

Initiatives like this are a reason for joy on any given day including Joyful Wednesday. Would that more countries would make such a statement.
