Annual Lecture

I am delighted to report that our Annual Lecture at St. George's Bloomsbury on Tuesday 17th June 2014 was a great success.

In front of an audience numbering more than 70, Ruth Gledhill interviewed Canon David Porter, the Director of Reconciliation for the Archbishop of Canterbury, and The Revd Nadim Nassar, Director for the Awareness Foundation, on 'Catalysts for Peace.' Canon Porter drew on his great experience of the Troubles and his involvement in the peace process in Northern Ireland, while Nadim spoke about the seven years he spent in Beirut during the Lebanese Civil War and the current conflicts in the Middle East.

Their message was clear: peace is difficult and the road to reconciliation is a long one, but it can be attained when all elements of a society support it. They agreed that when religion must be freed from political manipulation before faith can shine as a beacon of peace and forgiveness.

The event began with a warm welcome from the Rector of St. George's, The Revd David Peebles, and some brief introductions to the Awareness Foundation and especially its work in the Middle East.

After a robust Q & A session, the three stars of the evening were presented with icons by one of the Foundation's Trustees and by two of its staff.

A complete video of the Lecture is available here!
