Last week, I had the pleasure of being invited to an inter-faith talk at the lovely St James’s Church in Piccadilly, London, which was designed by Sir Christopher Wren in 1684. Entitled ‘In It Together - Muslim/Christian Relations: Co-operation not Conflict’, the event was organised by BibleLands and the guest speaker was HRH Princess Badiya Bint El-Hassan of Jordan. The respondent was Professor David Ford, Regius Professor of Divinity at Cambridge University.
Some readers might perhaps not be aware that Princess Badiya hails from the Jordanian Royal Hashemite Family and that she supports practical work to promote inter-faith and cross-cultural understanding. Moreover, her father - HRH Prince Hassan Bin Talal of Jordan - is one of the towering figures in interreligious dialogue and perhaps also one of the foremost thinkers across the world.
