Lambeth Interfaith Forum

23/03/2011

Earlier this week, members of faith communities met at Lambeth Palace for an event hosted by the Church of England national environmental campaign Shrinking the Footprint and partnered by the London School of Jewish Studies.

As well as attending participants were asked to commit to personal pledges for the year ahead.  These covered shopping, business practice and energy suppliers.  These were all hung on the 450 year old tree in the Palace gardens.

Speakers covered a range of issues, from green spaces to energy efficiency and theology to our buildings.  One speaker expressed his concern over whether our buildings served our community or whether our communities were serving our buildings.  Another talked about his feeling that nature was the ink in Gods quill.  It was an inspirational day which left participants inspired to go back to their communities and find new ways of working together.
