Charter for Compassion releasedNovember 18, 2009 at 10:21 pm | Posted in Events, History, Writing | Leave a comment
About a year ago, I blogged about a project to draft a Charter for Compassion. The world was invited to contribute, especially leaders of faiths.
“Later this week millions of Muslims, Christians, and Jews will be sent an email inviting them to come to the site and offer their choice of words, in their own language, to help create a charter capable of inspiring the world to focus on what the great religions share, as opposed to what divides them.”
On Nov. 12, the resulting Charter was released.
And see it read here:
If you agree, please Affirm the Charter. Other Affirmers include the Dalai Lama, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Peter Gabriel, and many, many more.
