     This talk is an event hosted by London Quakers and given by Tony Philpott (Clerk of the Quaker Universalist Group). It will be followed by group discussion and a plenary session.

    • Why do people have different beliefs about the meaning and purpose of life?
    • Doesn’t truth come from ‘all religions or none’ and not just a small sect in one of the world’s major belief systems?
    • Can peace only come when we fully respect other people and their beliefs?
    • Do Quaker Universalists lead the way in helping our society become less divided?

    You do not have to book in advance and entry is free. Coffee/tea will be available
    Please check the London Quakers website http://www.londonquakers.org.uk/ near the date for any final details.

    In this conference we will explore our understanding of forgiveness from a range of religious, moral and psychological perspectives and in a range of situations.

    It is widely assumed, in religions and in societies more generally, that forgiveness is a ‘good thing’ and that we ‘ought’ to forgive (or at least try to forgive) those that offend against us. In this conference we will be examining this assumption in depth in order to deepen our understanding of forgiveness and how this may be reached.
