Motivating Environmental Activism: What Can We Learn from Our Scriptures?
November 1, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm
An open Scriptural Reasoning dialogue event for Scottish Interfaith Week
This event will feature speakers from Sikh and Buddhist backgrounds who will present texts demonstrating calls to be environmentally engaged, followed by time for participants from other faith backgrounds to discuss what their own scriptures have to say on the subject.
You do not have to be in any way an expert in your texts or tradition to participate. People often comment on how much they learn at Scriptural Reasoning events – about their own tradition as well as the traditions of others!
Spaces are limited so book now to avoid disappointment.
This event will take place online. Registration is essential: Book on Eventbrite.
On booking you will be asked to choose from a list of options: “Sikh”, “Buddhist” or “Other.” There are designated spaces for Sikhs and Buddhists because texts from the Sikh and Buddhist traditions will be discussed in small groups. In order to ensure the best experience for everyone, we work to make sure each small group includes people from the traditions under discussion. No matter what your background – religious or not – there will also be time for you to share from your own perspective.
Please choose only the ticket type which is appropriate to you, as this is to ensure that all three religions’ will have a balanced number of attendees for fruitful discussion.
If your ticket type is sold out, please join the waiting list by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
