We are delighted to share some of the striking photographs taken at our interfaith event in Birmingham.
Recently, the Centre for the Art of Dying Well hosted an interfaith event in Birmingham exploring whether a clear understanding of eternity can help us to live well in the here and now. The speakers were all members of the Birmingham Faith Leaders Group – a network established in the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks in New York – demonstrating, perhaps, that we are stronger when we work together, and in sharing our similarities we can also learn from our differences.
The event attracted a diverse audience of over 140 attendees, in person and online. Many came from the worlds of health and social care. We were fortunate to have a talented photographer with us – Marcin Mazur – who captured these memorable images.
Our lovely host James Abbott discusses the subject of eternity in episode 34 of our podcast with Archbishop Bernard Longley (Christian), Imam Mohammed Asad (Muslim), and Simon Romer (Buddhist), focusing in particular on whether a knowledge of eternity can help us to live well in the here and now.
