‘For a time like this’ – Scottish Interfaith Week Lecture #pisky #anglican

I was honoured to be asked to deliver the annual Scottish Interfaith Week Lecture last night in Dunfermline.

The controversy about the Church of England’s video advert has given Interfaith Week some focus. But far more importantly, the events in Paris and the nature of Islamic jihadist terrorism which is now a significant threat all over the world demand a discussion about how it is that religious movements allow themselves to be used in the cause of violence and division.
