Faith, War & Peace - living a life of faith in a violent world
Wednesday 14 November 19.00 – 21.00
The Friends Meetinghouse, 131 Cambridge Road, Middlesbrough TS5 5HL
We begin with a presentation introducing the theme, including audio-visual material relating to the Armistice. Individuals then have an opportunity to represent the position of their faith concerning war and peace and participate in discussion with the group. Questions which may be addressed include: Is it appropriate to remember the sacrifice of those killed in war? Is war ever justified? Is killing ever justified? Are conscientious objectors to be applauded or censured? If by our inaction we allow one person to kill another, are we culpable? What practical ways can people of faith encourage peace and influence society?
