EBOR Lecture: “Where love and justice finally meet” The place of forgiveness in mending broken relationships
May 9, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pmFREE but booking with eventbrite is required
Speaker: Marina Cantacuzino
Amid a global rush towards hate, division and insularity, Marina Cantacuzino, founder of The Forgiveness Project, will examine how forgiveness and humanising narratives can help break cycles of violence, transform relationships and restore hope. Marina is a journalist who founded the forgiveness project in 2004. The project was set up to tell the real stories of people whose response to being harmed was not a call for revenge but rather a quest for restoration and healing.
This is part of the Ebor Lectures 2018 Programme with the theme Peace and Reconciliation.
The year 2018 marks the centenary of the ending of World War I. Communities and individuals across the world will be involved in commemorating and remembering those who fought, survived or died in this war. As part of this commemoration our 2018 series of the Ebor lectures, ‘Peace and Reconciliation’ , offers a range of speakers who will talk about various, themes, issues and examples, both past and present, concerned with building peace and promoting reconciliation in a variety of contexts. It is hoped that this series will provide further understanding of how the healing of communities and progress along the peace-building road can be achieved.
As Mahatma Ghandi said in his teaching on peace: ‘You must be the change you wish to see in the world’.
The Ebor lectures is a project jointly organised by York Minster, York St John University, The Order of the Carmelites , The Yorkshire North and East District of the Methodist Church and The C. & J.B. Morrell Trust.
