Yesterday, 20 January, was World Religion Day.
World Religion Day is an awareness day aimed at celebrating the values and teachings of all religions and promoting inter-faith understanding and harmony.
It is an opportunity to share your culture and your faith with others and to learn from others about theirs.
It is not about conversion or proselytising. It is simply about taking the time to consider the different faiths of the world around you with an open mind.
Many of us are spiritual, whatever our specific tenets of faith or belief may be. The idea behind observing and celebrating World Religion Day is to promote the concept of oneness for world unity, as well as to spread knowledge and understanding without judgement or condemnation.
There is always far more that unites us than there is that divides us.
At Martin Bullock Lawyers we share the values of diversity, tolerance, compassion and justice. We invite you all to contemplate your own values and your own spirituality on World Religion Day.
Thank you for reading. To quote the comedian Dave Allen,
Good night, and may your God go with you.
