Bishop of Leicester to speak on Pursuing Peace in a World of Faiths
The Right Reverend Martyn Snow, Bishop of Leicester (pictured), will discuss ‘Pursuing Peace in a World of Faiths’ at a free public lecture at the University.
He will present this year’s Provost Derek Hole Annual Lecture which will take place in the Ken Edwards Lecture Theatre on Thursday 13 October at 5.30pm and is free and open to the public.
His lecture, ‘Pursuing Peace in a World of Faiths’ will reflect on his own experiences in different parts of the world to explore how people of different faiths can work together to pursue peace.
Bishop Martyn said: “After a string of terrorist attacks across Europe in recent months, many people are deeply worried not just about the possibility of such attacks here, but also about community relations more generally. Leicester can rightly be proud of our track record in community cohesion, but I will reflect in this lecture on the dangers of being complacent.
“More than ever at this moment in our history, we need different faith communities to be open to learning from one another - we all have wisdom to give and we all need to be ready to receive. There is an intimate link between peace with my neighbour, peace with God and peace within myself.”
The lecture will take place in the Ken Edwards Lecture Theatre on Thursday 13 October at 5.30pm and is free and open to the public. A drinks reception will follow at 6.30pm in the City Lounge on the first floor of the Charles Wilson Building.
