Silence, prayers, action for peace in the Middle East

Join us on Tuesday 5 August 4pm – 5.30pm.

The Christian Muslim Forum and St Ethelburga’s are bringing people together from all faiths and none in the Tent at St Ethelburga’s, Bishopsgate, EC2.

“We watch the news in great distress as we see our Jewish, Christian and Muslim sisters and brothers being killed and on the receiving end of atrocities in Syria, Israel, Palestine, Iraq and Egypt.

We aim, through various inter faith and peace initiatives, to model the way of peaceful dialogue while petitioning our leaders and politicians to use their influence and intervene constructively.

However, clicking on internet petitions and speaking out can seem like small actions or that our voices are not being heard. What can we do?”

More information here – places are limited and booking essential.  Bring a prayer or meditation with you if you wish.

Update: the Tent was packed to capacity -view photos here.
