3 November Letter Dear Friends, The other day children from Parkinson Lane Primary School came to St. Hilda s to learn what happens in a Christian church. First Martin impressed them with all the fancy robes a vicar wears for the different seasons of the church s year. Then in six groups the different parts of the church were explained and what happens there: The font, the high altar, the Lady chapel, the pulpit, the organ and the choir. It was amazing to see the eagerness in the faces of the six year old children to learn about the Christian church and to show what they knew already. To build bridges of understanding between faiths is absolutely vital in today s world, and Parkinson Lane school is a shining example. A Christian doctor in India said to a visitor from England that Britain had a vital role to play to show the world how people of different faiths can live together in a constructive way. In recent months this has been tested with terrorist attacks and incidents of racial hatred. However, this makes the task even more urgent, to work for mutual understanding. It is on the one hand a call for an understanding of different cultures; this is probably the first step. Yet as people of faith we are called to learn about the other faiths and to come into dialogue with each other. Like ecumenism in the 20 th century, interfaith dialogue has grown enormously during the last seventy years. As true followers of Jesus we cannot live in an insulated capsule of piety. Jesus has died for the whole world, and he was killed because he wanted to put all barriers down, and this was too threatening for the rulers of his time. Whenever we exclude, we are not living out Christ. True dialogue which can grow and ripen and bear fruit, always starts best with friendship. When we accept each other as friends despite our differences, true understanding follows. And it will spread into our surroundings. 3

4 In interfaith dialogue we do not water down our own faith. In the contrary, the more we learn about other faiths, our own faith becomes strengthened. We also learn from each other; there are different ways of prayer, especially in the Eastern religions, which can help Christians to deepen their own prayer life. We do not try to convert each other. That is not the aim. One Muslim Imam wrote: I would like my Christian friend to become a Muslim, and I am clear that he would like me to become a Christian. Both such changes are highly unlikely. Acknowledging this we engage happily in dialogue together. This month we keep Interfaith Week from November. On Tuesday clergy and imams are meeting. And on Thursday from 6pm everybody is invited to Holy Trinity Primary School, first for a meal and then for various inputs. Last year I led a circle dance, the African Masithi ( Praise the Lord ), and everybody was invited to join. The Mayor took up the challenge! It became a highlight of the evening as it brought different people together in one big circle. The Women s Interfaith Group meets each month with different topics. It is a group where friendships have been formed. However, we still miss Muslim women at many of the meetings. This is something we need to work at. We live in a world which is increasingly polarised by religion. We need to show in interfaith work that this division is not inevitable. A helpful book I have found is Celebrating Difference, Staying Faithful, by Andrew Wingate. May God bless you all, Madeleine Circle Dance Our next dates are: 11 November and 2 December am-12.30pm followed by soup lunch. Christ Church, Pellon, Church Lane Halifax HX20EF Madeleine 4

5 Remembrance Sunday 12th November - Remembrance Service Beginning outside the Maypole Warley starting at 10.45am and then processing to St. John s Church for the conclusion of the service. Tea & Coffee will be served after the service. Led by Rev Stephen Bradberry Interfaith: Interfaith Week: Thursday 16 November, 6-8pm Holy Trinity Primary School, Savile Park Road, starting with a meal, followed by various inputs. Words of Wisdom A solid foundation gives a building strength; the right materials give it lasting value. Listen with the ears of faith if you would hear the voice of God. The resurrection is a fact of history that demands a response of faith. Faith is taking God at his word. God's resources are always equal to his requirements. 5
