The religions of the world board one ship

By Fr. Dr. Rif'at Bader-Germany

For five days, about 1,000 people arrived in the German city, or rather island, of Lindau, which is located on the Austrian border, and by Lake Constance. Lindau is attributed to a tree called Linden.

Representatives from 125 countries and from various religions in the world came gathered to participate in the "Religions for Peace 10th World Assembly". In this context I would like to refer to the following five points:

First: This gathering is considered one of the largest international conferences related to religions in terms of the number of attendees as well as in terms of the diversity of religions, and the invitations addressed to so-called minorities, or rather religious gatherings that are small in number, and the participating religious traditions. How impressive it was to board a single ship on a joint voyage in Lake Constance, as some referred to as the new Noah ship that carries all religions and ethnicities.

Second: During the sessions, attention was focused on five issues considered by the United Nations as pillars of intellectual consideration in the upcoming regional and international conferences and workshops, namely conducting research and striving to attain positive peace, preventing and transforming violent conflicts, sustainable and integral human development, promoting just and harmonious societies, sustainable and integral human development, and protecting the Earth the environment and Earth.

Third: A memorial symbolizing peace among the peoples of the world called “the Ring of Peace” was inaugurated in Lindau with the participation of High Representative for the United Nations Alliance of Civilizations Miguel Ángel Moratinos, former foreign minister of Spain, who loves Jordan dearly. He said that we should restore talks about peace instead of confining discussions to security, use the term alliance instead of the traditional term dialogue, use living together instead of coexistence, and use the term citizenship rather than just tolerance.

Fourth: This is a source of pride for every Arab, especially for women in our Arab societies, namely the election of Egyptian Azza Karam, who has been working at the United Nations Development Programme offices. She was elected as the new secretary general for the “Religions for Peace World Assembly”, succeeding William Findley who spent 27 years serving the Assembly, and whose name was always associated with Religions for Peace. He was paid tribute by all the participants.

Fifth: A Jordanian delegation participated in the Religions for Peace 10th World Assembly. There was an intervention by Director of the Catholic Center for Studies and Media (CCSM) in Jordan Fr. Dr. Rif’at Bader, on “the need to devise educational methods to show the beauty of non-violence and to encourage young people to follow this path altogether.” This delegation participated in a meeting with representatives of the Middle East and North Africa designed to continue inter-Middle Eastern cooperation in order to make the Arab participation more effective, lasting, and organized.

O Linadu, spread the message of religions for the attainment of peace.
