Lord Mayor's Annual MultiFaith Celebration
Wednesday 27th March in the Lord Mayor's Chapel, College Green, Bristol BS1 5TB
Arrivals from 7.00 p.m. for 7.30 start
The present Lord Mayor is Cllr Cleo Lake and she has chosen the theme 'Conflict Resolution' for the event.
Please consider whether your faith community could make a contribution to the programme. I think the theme could be interpreted quite widely to include work such as:
- mediation in neighbourhood disputes;
- restorative justice to help deal with criminals and their victims;
- anger management training for those responsible for hate crime;
- overseas activities to resolve conflict caused by tribal, ethnic or religious differences;
- overseas work to tackle disputes arising from shortages of water, land or other resources.
We are looking for about five varied contributions so each could have a slot of 10 to 15 minutes. If you would like a contribution from your faith community to be considered please respond to me by Wednesday 13th March indicating what is planned and whether you would require use of a projector and audio equipment.
