Faith & Peace Exhibition
October 21 - November 19
An Exhibition sponsored by APF
Is religion a cause of conflict and war, or can it be the basis of a real peace? Religion is blamed for much of the violence in the world, yet most faiths demand respect for all human beings.
The three “Religions of the Book” – Judaism, Christianity and Islam – share common roots in ancient stories of such spiritual ancestors as Abraham. They also share values and visions of peace, recognising the human worth of all people.
This exhibition looks at the way in which the three faiths promote peace – in their teaching, and in the lives of their people. We look especially at the creative lives of women from different faiths, living together in peace, in Bradford, Yorkshire.
Of course, the richness and diversity of world religions mean that this cannot be the whole story. But a glimpse into the primacy of peace in these three faiths is surely a sign of hope – hope that, far from being the problem, these faiths could actually hold in themselves the solutions to the troubles of our world.
