I’ve been following the development of the global Charter of Compassion, an idea developed by the wonderful Karen Armstrong following her receipt of the TED prize. This is a truly powerful idea, one that I hope will have a great impact on how we see ourselves as humanity.
The final Charter for Compassion is to be unveiled on November 12, and I hope you will all follow and support this initiative.
I was honored to be invited to take part in a multi-faith photograph for the Charter tomorrow at the Opera House. I love doing interfaith work so much, there are so many wise and compassionate people out there.
We all need to do our bit to use religion to respond creatively and constructively to our environment, making it a force for helping rather than hurting, fostering love and inclusiveness, not alienation and ignorance.
