Faith in Dark Times

Young people of faith responding to the current crisis

Join us for an evening panel discussion with our Sacred Activists at the end of their 9 month journey and intergenerational dialogue exploring faith, activism and community.

Are you a young person wondering what contribution you can offer to the world and wanting to explore how your faith tradition can offer resilience?  An elder or faith leader wondering how to best support and equip young leaders to bring about change?

Join us for an inspiring evening that explores how to stay resilient in times of darkness; the role of faith and young people in bringing about positive change; and ways to embody the changes we wish to see in the world.

Summary

Every day we are presented with heartbreaking news of rising division, violence, fear, and oppositional world views, and yet there is much to be hopeful for.  At the grassroots level, young people who have inherited the challenges generated by previous generations are initiating compassionate, creative, and unifying action.

The incredible group of 20 young graduates from our Sacred Activists leadership programme will guide us through exploring what it means to be a young person navigating the world’s challenges, and how reclaiming our ‘heartbreak’ can inspire and inform our actions, in our communities and in the world.

Event Format

This conversation aims to be an intergenerational space, bringing young people, faith leaders and elders together.   The event will open with an introduction to the Sacred Activists programme, followed by a panel discussion and integenerational dialogue.  We will also spend some time in prayer for the plight of refugees.
