UPF National Interfaith Week event.
'The Role of People of Faith in Healing the Divisions in our World'.
November 17th 2020
One of the best online events we hosted during lockdown! We invited speakers from ten different faith traditions - Christian, Muslim, Jewish, Hindu, Sikh, Jain, Brahma Kumari, Sant Nirankari, Bahai and Zoroastrian - to share perspectives on our role, as people of faith, in bringing healing and forgiveness into our troubled, divided world.
Special guests were a 99-year old Jewish lady who joined on zoom, Sheikh Nuru Mohammed Co-Chair of Birmingham Citizens UK, Upashak-Ji MBE - the European Director of the Sant Nirankari group, Rev Dr Marcus Braybrooke, pioneering Interfaith for the past 60 years, Dr Peter Rookes, Secretary of the Birmingham Council of Faiths, and Rakesh Botla, a graduate of our Interfaith Children's Home in India, who has gone from 'zero to hero'.
