Human rights derive from human dignity. All world religions address our human quest for meaning, the sense of awe before the beauty of the universe, the belief that there is purpose in the world and that we were created in the image of a divine Father. Whichever way we worship and express our joy at being alive, we share the same human dignity and should celebrate the commonalities of all religions.
This conference will explore the many opportunities to collaborate in building peaceful, equitable societies. For starters: let’s practice what we preach. And let us have more dialogue – not less. Sursum corda!
