Faith. Responsibility. Peace."Seek peace and pursue it"
"Religions and Peace - How can that succeed?" Our Imam Osman Örs will give a lecture on these questions as part of the series of talks on interreligious dialogue in Berlin's district Treptow-Köpenick, followed by a discussion.
Most people want nothing more than peace. In conversations it sometimes becomes clear that there are different ideas about peace. The importance that the churches attach to this theme is reflected in their choice of the 2019 motto of the year: "Seek peace and pursue it". But how can this succeed? Are there successful role models?
Imam Osman Örs will report from his daily dialogue and understanding work, to which the interreligious foundation House of One has dedicated itself. Together with Pastor Ulrich Kastner and Pastor Marit von Homeyer, further reflections as well as practical ideas and projects will be discussed on this evening.
The evening will be moderated by Constanze Körner of the SozDia Foundation Berlin. The discussion evening is the last of three events in the discussion series "Faith - Responsibility - Peace".
The House of One introduces itself. Imam Osman Örs and administrative director Roland Stolte talk about the work of the foundation, the planned sacred building on Petriplatz and the history of this primeval Berlin town as part of the excursion series Ortsbekenntnis - Bekenntnisorte der Guardini-Stiftung Ortsbekenntnis – Bekenntnisorte .
The churches in the former GDR played an important role in the peaceful revolution 30 years ago. Together with the Berlin based congregation Versöhnungsgemeinde and the Berlin Forum of Religions, the Jews, Christians and Muslims of the House of One and numerous representatives of other religions commemorate these dramatic months in 1989 two days before the fall of the Berlin Wall on November 9.
