Linking and sharing with the faith communities of South London
Scriptural Explorations are multi-faith meetings at which selected scripture texts from different faiths, relating to the chosen theme, are presented briefly and discussed. In a set of three meetings, texts from up to 9 faiths could be presented, ie Baha’i, Buddhist, Christian, Hindu, Jain, Jewish, Muslim, Sikh, and Zoroastrian texts.
The theme this time will be ‘Healthy Lifestyles’. The idea comes from a research project being run by Dr Haider Ali of the Open University, who hopes that the texts of different faiths could be used to encourage healthier lifestyles among faith community members. Dr Ali has kindly given his blessing to our borrowing of his theme.
The 4 meetings will take place on Wednesdays, 15th, 22nd, 29th June and 6th July, 2.30 – 4.30pm
Venue: Streatham Friends Meeting House, Redlands Way, Roupell Park Estate, Brixton Hill, SW2 3LU
