Parliament of the World’s Religions

The Parliament of the World’s Religions starts in Melbourne today, and 8000 people will attend. Topics include Healing the Earth, Reconciling with Indigenous Peoples, Overcoming Poverty in a Patriarchal World, Creating Social Cohesion, Sharing Wisdom in the Search for Inner Peace, Securing Food and Water for All, and Building Peace in the Pursuit of Justice.

Speakers include the Dalai Lama, Jimmy Carter, Joan Chittister and Michael Kirby. A fuller list is here.

It’s time for the world’s religious leaders to talk together, and to be seen to talk together. I’m glad it’s happening, and I wish I could have been there.
