Many conflicts around the world today are fuelled by religious intolerance and violent misuse of faith. Yet all religious traditions uphold ‘The sacred gift of life’ and should be promoting peace, locally and globally. It is vital people of different faiths come together to affirm common commitment to building peace – by overcoming divisions, working for economic and social justice, and supporting disarmament and reconciliation processes – and creating a harmonious global human community. Inter-faith events for world peace, with statements, readings from sacred scriptures, meditation and music, can strongly affirm this purpose. Can you arrange such an event in your locality?
If so please click on this flyer (pdf) for further details…
Prayer for peace:
Lead us from death to life, from flasehood to truth,
Lead us from despair to hope, from fear to trust,
Lead us from hatred to love, from war to peace.
Let peace fill our hearts, our lives, our world, our universe. Amen.
“I commend observation of the September Peace days promoted by Uniting for Peace. In a world of conflict and war, it is fitting and essential that Christians and people of other faiths strive together to advance God’s purpose and human yearning for a world of peace and justice. Without vision the world and its people will perish. With vision the earth and its inhabitants will be renewed. Please join this effort by holding an event in your area.”
