Bridges - June 2020

We pray for those who have lost lives, loved ones, and livelihood in the coronavirus pandemic.  We give thanks for the healthcare workers.  We pray God’s healing hand upon the sick, protection from infection for all, especially the poor, the elderly and the vulnerable, and an end to this pandemic very soon.  We offer solidarity to all who feel alone, isolated and afraid.

  • The Editorial reflects on what the pandemic reveals (p. 1)
  • Centre News shares our interfaith works and visitors (pp. 2-3)
  • World News shows interfaith highlights in various countries (pp. 4-5)
  • Ramadan Greetings from the Director of the Centre (p. 6)

  • Christians & Muslims Pray Together in Lebanon (p. 8)
  • Interfaith Action, a civic and sacred value (p. 9)

We wish all our Muslim readers a blessed celebration of Eid al-Fitr (24 May)

We wish all our Christian readers a Spirit-filled Pentecost (31 May)

May we all grow closer to each other and to God.
