COP26: Interfaith Scriptural Reading

The theme of this session will be “ecology and the environment“. The session will focus on three short scriptural passages relevant to this theme – a Jewish text from the Tanakh, a Christian text from the New Testament, and an Islamic text from the Qur’an. After an introduction to Scriptural Reasoning, and to each text in turn, participants will split into small break-out groups, each including members for these three faith traditions. In these groups, there will be time to explore the texts together.
