Homelessness focus at next Abrahamic Council meeting

The Wellington Abrahamic Council is to hold a meeting to explore insights into homelessness, including our responsibilities toward the homeless, from the three Abrahamic faiths of Christianity, Judaism and Islam.

The Council says that the three traditions have insights about homelessness and of ways of mobilising support and energies to address this growing concern.

“The aim of this forum is twofold. First, to explore the insights and understandings of the significance of a having and not having a home in our religious traditions, focusing on our responsibilities for the homeless in our community. Secondly, to raise awareness about homelessness – why? who? and what can we do together to alleviate the plight of the homeless in our community?”

The forum details are as follows:

  • Wednesday 20th February, 7pm
  • Wellington Islamic Centre, 9 Queens Drive, Kilbirnie, Wellington
  • All welcome – food and refreshments will be provided.

Speakers:

  • Jewish: Prof Paul Morris
  • Christian: Rev Brian Dawson
  • Muslim: Dr Faried Fachruddin
