Imagining Peace

Pádraig Ó Tuama

NB. Please note that the date of this reflective day has changed from the date advertised on the leaflet.

Autumn 2018 is the centenary of the end of the 1914-18 war – ‘the war to end all wars’. Since then, there has not been a single day when the world has been at peace.

Saturday 30 March 2019 10am - 5pm
St Katharine’s Foundation in Limehouse £45 (bursaries are available)
The day includes reflective worship, lunch and other refreshments and takes place at St Katharine’s Foundation in Limehouse, East London (www.rfsk.org.uk). We are very grateful to our partners at St Katharine’s for their generosity in co-hosting our reflective days.

Why is peace so hard, and conflict so universal?

Jesus says that blessed – happy – are the peacemakers. But he doesn’t say it’s easy. In this reflective day, we will look at peace and conflict within ourselves, in our communities and in politics. We will explore the obstacles and opportunities for transformation through Bible stories, our own experiences, and the stories we tell about ourselves and others, including Pádraig Ó Tuama’s experiences of peacemaking and conflict resolution in Northern Ireland.

Pádraig Ó Tuama is a poet and theologian based in Belfast. He teaches on religion, storytelling and conflict resolution, and is the leader of the Corrymeela Community, the longest-established ecumenical peace and reconciliation community in Northern Ireland. His books include In the Shelter: Finding a Home in the World (Hodder 2015) and Daily Prayer with the Corrymeela Community (Canterbury Press 2016).
