Dear friends, items for your information and action as appropriate:
1st September to 4th October: Month-long Season of Creation. See www.SeasonOfCreation.org
Wednesday 21st September: International Day of Peace. The first-ever Coventry Peace Day “Come Together for Peace” is being organised by United Nations Association Coventry Branch. The UN is encouraging us to think about how the Sustainable Development Goals can promote peace by “ending poverty, protecting the planet and ensuring broadly shared prosperity all contribute to global harmony…when people feel secure in their abilities to provide for their families, when they are given access to the resources they need to live healthy lives, and when they feel truly included in their societies, then they are much less likely to engage in conflict.” We believe that if people of different nationalities, religions, races or cultures meet and if possible work together to achieve a goal, this will foster peace by helping them overcome ignorance and prejudice.
