Faith in the Public Square Community Forum 2

REV Dr Harold Good OBE invites everybody to attend a conversation entitled “Faith In The Journey?” on Wednesday 27th April 2011 at 8pm at Thyme & Co., 6 Quay Road, Ballycastle.

The Rev Good is a Former President of the Irish Methodist Conference. He has been involved in ‘peacemaking’ in Northern Ireland and beyond. Throughout his Ministry he was a former Director of The Corrymeela Centre and Chair of the Northern Ireland Association for the Care and Resettlement of Offenders. Moreover, he was one of the two clergy entrusted by the De Chastelain Commission with supervising the decommissioning of IRA arms in 2005.

The Rev Good was recipient in 2005 of the Basque Government’s Rene Cassin Peace Award, in 2007 of the World Methodist Peace Prize and in 2008 of the Ghandi Foundation International Peace Award.

He remains a Governor of Methodist College and Edgehill Theological College, Belfast and is a frequent visitor to Ballycastle.

Subjects discussed in Rev Good’s conversation will include the part faith has played in the history of our conflict, whether faith has been a help or hindrance in our search for peace, if faith has anything distinctive to offer in our journey towards healing and, given recent events, whether we can continue to have ‘Faith in the Journey?’.

Open questions and discussion will follow the conversation and supper will be provided. A maximum of 50 people can attend so come early to avoid disappointment!
