Description : “… the global socio-economic conditions have forced us to become more resourceful, more resilient, more determined; whilst remaining hopeful, we must work together to challenge and strive for something better – to this end women are crucial for change…” Wahida Shaffi, Women’s Programme Lead
‘Faith, Fear, Friendship: Contextualising Islam and Christianity in the UK’ will be an interactive and thought-provoking extravaganza involving leading Christian and Muslim women in the UK. It takes place in London on 5 February 2013 during Global Interfaith Harmony Week.
The event is the next phase of the Christian Muslim Forum’s Women’s Programme (commenced 2011) titled “Come to the Edge” taken from this poem by Christopher Logue:
Come to the Edge
We Might fall.
Come to the edge
It’s too high!
COME TO THE EDGE!
And they came,
And we pushed,
And they flew.
A Rose for Friendship Exhibition will be launched on the day.
The Christian Muslim Forum will be giving awards to 12 women across England, recognising their outstanding contribution made in the field of inter faith.
Come and enjoy an interactive theatrical performance, feature in a short film and meet inspirational women!
