Three viewpoints for Interfaith Week
Sunday sees the start of Interfaith Week 2016. As part of its contribution, PCN has asked three of our members to write about their experiences of Interfaith.
The three blogs will appear over the next week. The contributors are
13th November: Alan Race from south London who has written books about Interfaith Dialogue and Religious Pluralism. He will argue that religious diversity could be seen as ‘the will of God’ and that by dialogue with the other, we are better able to be ourselves.
15th November: Howard Grace, co-founder of the West Berkshire Peace and Integration Forum. Howard will write about the Forum’s ground breaking work under the title Interfaith Orthopraxy.
17th November: Nicola Phelan, a PCN group convenor from Rugby. Nicola will share her experience and observations as a progressive within her local interfaith forum and will argue that atheists should be included.
We would like to hear from our readers. Please use the comment section at the foot of each blog to add your thoughts.
Jordan and the Holy Land - A Biblical and Pilgrimage Journey including interfaith dialogue
Two members of Cardiff’s PCN group are organising a visit to Jordan, the West Bank and Israel. Stuart Fletcher and Sally Thomas hope to travel over two weeks next April/May. Stuart explains why now is a good time to plan a visit
‘Jordan in particular has suffered badly from a drop in visitors due to the Syrian troubles. Hotels have been mothballed, unemployment has risen sharply. The arrival of western tourists can give a real sense of hope. The tour intends to engage
several representatives of interfaith groups to talk about their initiatives. Our presence upon the regions streets counts greatly
in the fight against injustice.’
