St Phillips Centre
The St Philip’s Travelling Road Show: A group (Christian, Muslim, Hindu, Sikh, Bahai, Buddhist, Jewish, Pagan, Jain, Humanist) organised by St Philip’s Ecumenical Centre: Once a month or so we go to a school, usually in a minibus, set up our displays and spend a full day (9.30-15.30) talking to small groups of students (usually about 250 students in all) about our beliefs, the diversity of Leicester, and the importance of living well together.
In modern multi-faith societies, religious diversity not only affects religious organisations and communities, but indeed every aspect of life. From celebrating cultural events, to considering how the police should interact with members of the public from different faith communities, this book highlights the ways in which all members of society can engage constructively with diversity.
This ground-breaking book draws on the work at the St Philip’s Centre in Leicester and presents a collection of case studies to show how people from a variety of religious backgrounds and ethical convictions have learnt to coexist peacefully. Without shying away from the conflicts and challenges that have occurred, the book focuses on the lessons learnt and offers real examples of how to promote positive interfaith relationships.
This is an excellent resource for anyone wishing to understand the issues of religion and belief that may arise at local and national levels, and develop appropriate attitudes and actions for peaceful resolution. Illustrated, published 1 Jun 2017
