Book Launched at Centre’s Annual General Meeting
On the evening of Wednesday 7th June at St Philip’s Centre’s Annual General Meeting, Tom Wilson & Riaz Ravat launched their newly-published book – ‘Learning to Live Well Together – Case Studies in Interfaith Diversity’.
Natalie Watson (pictured) from Jessica Kingsley Publishers was present to recommend the book to the audience.
The book uses the Centre’s aim of learning to live together and the four criteria by which we evaluate our work (encounter, understanding, trust and co-operation) to introduce the City of Leicester, the St Philip’s Centre and the work we do. Specific chapters discuss our central aim of living well together, as well as each of the four criteria.
Aimed at professionals whose working life is impacted by faith and belief, it is a practical, accessible guide to the challenges and opportunities of interfaith work in twenty-first century Leicester. It features case studies of the Centre’s work in the Education sector as well as our work with the Armed Forces and Police. The book also discusses the Catalyst programme, Near Neighbours and Prevent and comments on issues such as hate crime and child sexual exploitation.
