In search of ...

This seems like the right week to mention some of the excellent interreligious work and projects that exist in Switzerland.
The news of the Swiss referendum vote against the building of new minarets is leading to much comment and discussion well beyond the borders of this small federal state known in the past for its neutrality.
Pictured here is this year's interreligious calender from Geneva's Inter-religious Platform. This year the ascetic life and mysticism are the theme - in previous years themes have included food, death, pilgrimage and ecology.
The Calender always runs from September in one year through to December of the next year. It's a great thematic resource and also shows the dates of major religious and non religious festivals. Click on the link to order a copy.
