Faith, Health and Peace
For the past few years I have served on the planning committee for a series of interfaith conferences on peace issues. Past conferences have featured important and worthwhile speakers, panels, and workshops. The conferences are well-run, inexpensive, and held in a really beautiful place. We are trying now to spread our publicity to more people. I would not be promoting these conferences or, for that matter, serve on the committee, if I did not think they were worth my time and effort.
The upcoming conference is on health issues as seen from a faith context and as peace issues. We have speakers coming from Geneva and Cape Town; speakers and panelists who are Christian, Jewish Muslim, Christian Scientists, and from other spiritually-driven healing traditions. Among our speakers, but not mentioned in the publicity materials I am posting here is Joshua Dubois who served in the first Obama administration as head of the Office of Faith-based and Neighborhood Partnerships. He was also a spiritual advisr to the President providing him with devotional readings each morning.
Here is the promotional material.
