Members of the Maidenhead’s faith communities – together with others with no religious affiliation – this week completed a series of four discussion evenings on religion and peace.

Participants have aged from 17 to 75 years – and included agnostics as well as members of Christian, Sikh, Muslim, Jewish, Buddhist, Hindu, Quaker and Bahá’í communities.

Organised by the Bahá’í community of Maidenhead, the evenings were hosted by St Mark’s Crescent Methodist Church.

Participants studied together and reflected upon a letter to the world’s religious leaders from the international governing body of the worldwide Bahá’í community. The letter, published in 2002, analyses the roots of religious prejudice and conflict, and sets out principles to enable organised religion to play its part in building a peaceful, just and prosperous world for all.

There is more on the letter and its impact here. The full text of the letter is available to download here .
