FAITHS FOR PEACE:
Around the World today many conflicts are partly caused by community and religious divisions, or fuelled by religious intolerance and violent misuse of faith. Such are the antithesis of what true religion should be all about - for all faith traditions uphold the sacredness of life, and if true to their core beliefs should be promoting harmony and peace, for the individual, society and the world.
UN International Day of Peace on September 21, 2012 is an ideal opportunity for faith representatives at the local level to come together to affirm common commitment to building peace and creating a harmonious human community locally and globally.
- INTERFAITH EVENTS FOR PEACE:
Interfaith events with Statements, Readings from sacred Scriptures, Prayers and Meditation, Music, etc. from different faith traditions can strongly affirm and witness to peace.
- WHAT YOU CAN DO:
You can arrange an event in your locality around the UN International Peace Day on September 21, 2012 as the Economic and social infustice, major powers' desire to control natural resources, suppression of popular aspirations, and ethnic and religious tensions, cause many conflicts. Yet Peace with God, the neighbour and globally, is at the heart of all faiths. With UN Peace Day on September 21, the nearest days (Sundays/Fridays/Tuesdays etc.) is ideal opportunity for faith institutions. On that day, dedicate one of your regular sercvices to the theme of world peace, with prayers for peace and reconciliation in the world's conflict areas.
You can get the resources for the Inerfaith Peace Events by sending a cheque of £5 from UK and £8 from abroad in the name of 'Uniting for Peace', 97, Commercial Road, London, E1 1RD, UK.
