Wisdom from different traditions

WHILE it is a Christian church which has played a catalytic role in its development, the Festival of Spirituality and Peace 2012 is a platform for serious exchange and listening between and across belief traditions.

Contributions to the launch event of Sunday 5th August included music, reflection and prayer from people of Jewish, Baha'i, Doaist, Muslim, Christian and secular backgrounds.

"Prejudice is the same whatever its clothing," one participant observed. The aim of the rich mix of conversation, music, culture, workshops, food and hospitality that constitutes the Festival is all about combating division in human communities and promoting collaboration.
